Saxgourmet Super 400 Alto
The Super 400 is constructed from rose brass, which gives it a complex tone and quick response. The spectrum of overtones is much larger, and the dynamic range is significantly bigger. The large bore and big bell give the Super 400 tremendous projection and presence. Each Super 400 comes with two necks to give the player two entirely different tonal bases to work with. The #1 neck is rose brass and lends a full complex tone with absolutely effortless response. The #2 neck is a special gold brass which gives a brighter sound with more projection and is ideally suited for use with amplified instruments.
The Super 400 has some significant keywork improvements that all players will appreciate: keyed to High G, an upper stack speaker key which evens out the voicing of the upper stack notes, the “never stick” G# system, and an improved F# helper bar that enhances lower stack response. Both upper and lower stacks have adjustment screws for easy maintenance. The low C, B, and Bb are all stabilized with double arms.
The Super 400 saxophones are beautifully plated in bright copper, elaborately and extensively hand engraved, and clear coated with epoxy to prevent tarnishing. The key touch pearls are genuine deep water abalone. Black kangaroo leather Saxgourmet pads come with Copper Maestro Airtight Resonators from MusicMedic.com. The three ring strap hook and the oversized Saxgourmet right thumb rest make the Super 400 comfortable to hold and play. Comes in a premium Saxgourmet case.
