The new 52nd Street is the premier professional alto 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 nylon 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 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.
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.
