ABOUT OUR SAXOPHONES
Every Santee saxophone is hand-made by skilled craftsmen in Taiwan. We use the best materials and components available, including premium black Pisoni Pro Italian leather pads, blued needle springs and lead-free solder.
Where most manufacturers use ribbed construction, we Individually solder nearly all key posts. This lets the instrument vibrate more freely, giving you more projection and increased dynamic range.
ADVANCEMENTS IN REGULATION
Keywork also features adjustable left hand A, B and right hand D, E and F that feature rubber o-rings integrated in the screws that we've found help prevent displacement due to vibration.
Starting in 2022, we're including a GL Combi cases with our saxophones. They feature a TSA combination lock, extra strong Polycarbonate shell, Italian leather handle, and can be customized! Includes an expandable removable exterior compartment and another thinner compartment that can be velcroed to the bottom of the case! Interior features a combination of dense and soft foam, which holds our saxophones perfectly. * We recommend storing neckstraps and items smaller than a 5-pack of reeds in exterior compartments or in an accessory pouch.
Our saxophones also features styled keys. This is a more refined version of the traditional saxophone key design and makes for a stunning appearance.
We currently offer our 2C4 model in gloss black nickel plate with rose gold anodized keywork. The Armageddon model features satin black nickel plate with dark honey gold lacquered keywork.
* All finishes have a coat of clear lacquer applied during construction.
