DEALER UPDATE – February 7, 2019
Now at Sax Alley in Windsor, Colorado – a Santee 2C4 Pro-Fusion tenor in our "Vintage" finish as well as a black nickel tenor with anodized rose gold keys! If you're in the Denver area, be sure to give it a try and let us know how you like them! View their posting of the black/rose gold tenor HERE.
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.
Keywork also features adjustable left hand G, A and B, and right hand D, E and F that feature rubber rings that we've found helps prevent the displacement of adjustment screws due to vibration.
The 2C4 Pro-Fusion also features styled keys. This is a more refined version of the traditional saxophone key design and makes for a stunning appearance.
Your 2C4 Pro-Fusion comes with a beautiful synthetic leather soft-sided contoured case with side compartment and shoulder strap. It's not like a traditional gig bag in that it's made with a dense foam. However, if you plan on checking your instrument at the airport or stacking anything on top of it, we recommend you use a hard shell case instead.
Shoulder strap and neck strap are included. No mouthpiece is included.
ABOUT OUR SAXOPHONES
Every Santee saxophone is hand-made by skilled craftsmen in Taiwan. The necks are then customized by Aaron Santee (hand-beveled where air enters to reduce turbulence). Each instrument features elaborately hand engraved scrollwork, vines and beautiful flowers. The black mother of pearl finger buttons are lightly textured to help prevent slipping. We believe that we've also produced an instrument that is extremely comfortable to play. Tapered pivot screws and premium blued steel needle springs are used for solid/nimble key action. The new 2C4 Pro-Fusion line is also constructed with lead-free solder. We also use black waterproof Pisoni Pro Italian leather pads equipped metal resonators for increased projection.
Our instruments are available in three different finishes: Silver plate with black nickel plated keys, black nickel plate with rose gold anodized keys and our Vintage finish which has black nickel plated keywork. All of our finishes have a final coating of clear lacquer.
