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 which can be replaced with included expandable netting, 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, in the unlikely event it escapes the main accessory compartment.
The 2C4 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. Our Armageddon model features satin black nickel plate with dark honey gold lacquered keywork.
* All finishes have a coat of clear lacquer applied during construction.
ABOUT OUR FLUTES
We also produce a professional handmade flute model, the J3, which is also handmade in Taiwan. It features .925 sterling silver headjoint, body and foot tubing, as well as .925 sterling silver lip plate and riser. We also use platinum springs, premium pads and lead-free solder. Keys are beautifully finished in black nickel.
The J3 features an offset G, Split E, Low B and left hand pinless system.
Just like our saxophones, it also features rubber o-rings integrated in the adjustment screws to help prevent them from vibrating loose over time. Every Santee J3 also features beautiful hand engraving on both the body and headjoint.
Santee flutes come with a beautiful and highly protective graphite/grey GL hardshell case.
