Buffet Alto Saxophone 400 Series (lacquer finish) [BC8401-1-0]

Instrument details

The 400 Series is designed for the advanced student through the professional saxophonist. The alto saxophone is available in either antique brass/matte or gold lacquer (pictured) finish. The lacquer finish gives the instrument a slightly brighter tone color without losing the focus and core of the traditional French sound.

The 400 Series saxophones are meticulously hand-engraved and assembled for the highest level of quality and workmanship. With keywork up to high F# and exceptional response in the upper and lower registers, the 400 Series saxophones provide even response and intonation and an ideal combination of tonal qualities for jazz or classical performance.

The new Buffet Crampon saxophones incorporate classic French design combined with modern innovations to produce exceptional and affordable instruments for any level or budget.
