Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreToronto (Bloor St.), Ontario
I have been playing saxophone for over six years, two of which have been semi-professionally. I started my first year at Humber College in 2016. This has given me ample opportunity to be able to try many different horns, and actually tell the difference. I have played several different tenor and alto Selmer Mk. 6's, SBA's, BA's, Mk. 7's, Reference, Series III, all of the differnt Conn's, Brescher's, Yamaha's, P. Moriat's, Andrea Eastman's, and King's, Etc. And none of them compare to the ergonomics, the sound, the versatility, and especially the free blowing nature of the Seawind. I have spent thousands of hours in the practise room, and on the bandstand, and I won't do either without my Seawind.
