The new 52nd Street is the premier professional tenor saxophone by The Eastman Music Company. It’s designed to provide the professional saxophone player with a high performance instrument. These saxophones feature an un-lacquered finish with rolled tone holes. The un-lacquered finish gives the sax a fantastic vintage look and sound. Every Eastman saxophone has a sturdy body construction with a hand hammered bell, blue steel springs, hand engraved neck and bell, leather pads and metal resonators.
The 52nd Street is a very impressive free blowing player. Its un-lacquered body allows the horn to respond with a free and open resonance. The warm sonic color is very flexible and can be played with a ton of projection and power.
The double bracing arms on low C, B and Bb keys allow for an improved low end action and response. It features adjustable palm keys to fit the hands of any player. The key work on these horns includes a high F# and a tear drop styled front F key. The front F key is exceptional in its angle and placement which makes for a outstanding play response. The 52nd Street is available with or without high F#, available from the options listed.
Every Eastman horn sold from our store includes a free pro level key regulation and set-up, usually costing $250-300. These saxophones also come with the Saxquest one year set-up warranty and a deluxe box case with back pack straps. Please let us know if you have any questions about finishes or pricing on these instruments.
