Alpha sax

AlphasaxTM is 33% lighter than the standard alto sax

As one of the World’s leading woodwind designers and distributors, we have over the years been consistently receiving comments from parents and teachers about the problems facing a new and younger generation of players wanting to learn the saxophone. On further investigation we found that the major issues preventing the smaller and younger player from starting the instrument was the weight implications of (a) the instrument (b) outfit in carry case along with key positioning for the smaller hands.

The AlphasaxTM is not designed to take the place of the normal alto instrument, but is designed with the sole intention to enable the younger player who really wants to learn, to play now rather than have to wait until they grow!

The finger positions on the AlphasaxTM are more compact than a standard alto sax to reflect smaller hands. As hands grow larger, the ergonomics of the standard alto saxophone will enable a smooth transition.

The AlphasaxTM is in the key of Eb which is the same as the traditional alto sax. The innovative new mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger positioning of a traditional alto saxophone, so you will be able to use the standard tutor books and happily learn alongside others.
