ABOUT OUR SAXOPHONES
Every Santee saxophone is hand-made by skilled craftsmen in Taiwan. 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 line is also constructed with lead-free solder. We also use premium black Pisoni Pro Italian leather pads equipped metal resonators for increased projection.
Black Nickel plate with Rose Gold anodized keys, Vintage finish with Black Nickel plated keys, Silver plate with Black Nickel plated keys (NOTE: we have discontinued our Silver plated finish, but several altos in this finish may still be available through Sax Alley and USA Horn).
* All finishes have a coat of clear lacquer applied during construction.
For all new 2022 builds, we're including a GL Combi case. These are AMAZING cases! 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. The list of premium features continues well beyond this! We love these cases and are sure you will too!
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 and B and right hand D, E and F that feature rubber o-rings that we've found help prevent the displacement of adjustment screws due to vibration.
The 2C4 also features styled keys. This is a more refined version of the traditional saxophone key design and makes for a stunning appearance.
