Here are the features of this alto:

 

85% copper brass alloy

Styled keys

Hand-beveled neck at point of entry to help reduce turbulence.

Adjustable left and right stacks with rubber rings that could help keep the screws in place.

Lightly textured black mother of pearl finger buttons.

Soft-sided contoured synthetic leather case.

Santee instruments are hand-made by skilled craftsmen, then handed-off to Aaron Santee for final keywork adjustments, neck modification (hand beveling the inside of each neck where the air enters from the mouthpiece to decrease turbulence) and play testing.

Every Santee saxophone features elaborately hand engraved scrollwork, vines and beautiful flowers. The black mother of pearl finger buttons are lightly textured to help prevent slipping. We believe that we've also produced an instrument that is extremely comfortable to play. Tapered pivot screws and blued steel needle springs are used for solid/nimble key action. We also use high quality Pisoni pads with metal resonators for increased projection.

Where most manufacturers use ribbed construction, we Individually solder nearly all key posts. This lets the instrument vibrate more freely, giving you more projection and increased dynamic range. 

Keywork also features adjustable left hand G, A and B, and right hand D, E and F that feature rubber rings that may help prevent the displacement of adjustment screws due to vibration.

The 2C4 Pro-Fusion also features styled keys. This is a more refined version of the traditional saxophone key design and makes for a stunning appearance.

Your 2C4 Pro-Fusion comes with a beautiful synthetic leather soft-sided contoured case with side compartment and shoulder strap. It's not like a traditional gig bag in that it's made with a dense foam. However, if you plan on checking your instrument at the airport or stacking anything on top of it, we recommend you use a hard shell case instead.

Aaron is currently working on a line of saxophones and the alto listed here is one of his prototype models.  It is made from a phosphor brass alloy, silver-plated with black nickel plated keywork. Because it is a prototype, it has some slight finish imperfections.  

Here is a video of Aaron playing this alto:  https://youtu.be/1PDEFlzzf-0

THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND HORN, serial number 708, which no one else will own, other than you, should you decide to purchase it.  (There is a slight bubbling of the black nickel plate on the back side of the G key as the only imperfection we could find.)

We will include our Sax Alley $140 "Complete Adjusmtnent" in with the price so it will play well when you receive it and include FREE Shipping as well.
