I just got my new Buffet 400 alto in matte finish a few days ago and I must say thanks to all at Saxquest for a very pleasant purchase. The emails from Mark Overton were very helpful regarding the purchase. The sax arrived in great condition and played well just out of the case as Saxquest had already gone over the horn and got it in great adjustment. Thanks guys! The horn plays quite well for the money. Very substantial feel and quite similar to my Mark VI. The right little finger notes seem a little further down the horn and require a little more reach for comfort. Left hand low Bb key is also a little more reach than my Selmer but I adapted to both in a few minutes. The horn immediately feels comfortable to play. Very free blowing, yet resonant all the way up and down the horn. The scale is pretty good and like all saxes you have to adjust a few notes. Is it as good as my Mark VI? No, but it is close in feel, sound color and repsonse. Nothing but a Selmer has that "Selmer sound". For the money it's probably as good as you could buy. It ranks up there with many other professional level horns but less than half the price . I am happy with it and will start playing it on jobs. Thanks again to all at Saxquest.

I just had my senior recital and I played the Milhaud and Creston on it and it sounded great. I've also been doing a lot of transcribing on it and playing on my jazz setup with it and it's been just amazing. Thanks for the great horn guys :)

I recently purchased The Ultimate Ligature Designed by Francois Louis in silver plating, as a Christmas gift to myself and am very happy with my order from Saxquest so far! The total wait time from my purchase date took only three days on standard shipping! Customer support answered questions about my order quickly too.

Initially, I thought the ligature was a little flimsy. However, the mechanism looks absolutely unique in its design: out of the box, you'll see a metal apparatus of four hollow, rods sodered across two pentagonal frames attatched to a solid metal plate, a screw adjustment and handle through the middle, with a (reed) holder plate held by the screw, above it. The framing and rods are slightly wider and tilted at one end to accept the shape of the mouthpiece. It also comes with a hard rubber cap lined with a pad of cotton to protect the reed and lig from scratching against the inside of the cap.

I wasn't sure if it would hold up to the standard, generic ligature I had been using since my instruction -about 10 yrs use. I have never had to replace it, and it still works decently today. But with corrosion now forming along the adjustment screws, I decided it had been time to give it a rest. After looking around and a reccomendation by a friend, I found the Ultimate Ligature by Francois Louis to be a perfect decision! I love this thing so far, and am happy with its craftsmanship and the unique look and feel it delivers. On top of the design, the Ultimate Ligature, in silver plating, promises to give more resistance for the player and produce a darker tone than the brass, gold, or laquered versions. I chose silver for this reason because I wanted that darker tone and resistance for both my classical and jazz music.

Although, I was happy with the product, I was disappointed that the ligature didn't fit my bigger, jazz type mouthpieces, considering it was supposed to be an "XL" in size. I was wrong to assume right away that it would fit well for (generally) any type of mouthpiece available. For now, it seems, I have to wait for a new vintage mouthpiece that I had to order after the ligature, in oder to be able to use the thing. Dispite this unseen set-back, I am glad to see how well designed this product truly is, taking aside my initial reactions in its structure and construction. I think I can tell that the ligature was created with care, and passion to produce it, and that's what counts -this ligature is not some generically manufactured piece of metal to hold and support your reed. It is all about quality. That's what you get from Francois Louis. Quality in design, craftsmanship, and even for quality of sound for your instrument.

Many do not need to spend 50 dollars for a ligature, but those who own these ligatures know that they are worth their price. If nothing else, I am also an artist by nature, and would consider this instrument a piece of art itself. I'm actually considering buying another one cheaper from another distributer and since it's not going to be used, it may even increase in value over time. Don't delay, go get one for yourself!

For the discounted price brought to you buy Saxquest, it makes a perfect gift, or stocking stuffer for the holidays!
