The Jean Paul AS-400 Alto Saxophone
Today’s saxophone review is all about you guys! It’s the Jean Paul AS-400 and I’ve heard so many good things about it. PLUS, it’s under $500. You really can’t beat it!
After I unboxed and play-tested this saxophone, I can fully recommend the Jean Paul AS-400. I honestly, consider this alto to be the Best Student Alto Sax Under $500. It is a really well set up horn, and I had very little mechanical problems, if any, with this saxophone.
Jean-Paul USA has been providing great customer service and have repair centers set up around the country to service their instruments. It comes with a good beginner mouthpiece, and all the other necessary accessories to get started. The case that comes with the AS-400 is excellent and helps make this a fantastic value.
If you’re just starting out or just want something affordable, this is a great saxophone for you to purchase. If you have this saxophone, let me know how it’s been going in the comments below! Would love to hear about YOUR experience with the AS-400.
The BetterSax Alto Saxophone
Now if your budget can stretch to $150 more, we are now happy to also recommend the BetterSax Alto Saxophone. I have recently developed this instrument to fill a gap in the market for a high quality, reliable and desirable entry-level saxophone at the affordable price of $649.
My vision for this saxophone is to change the way we think of an entry level instrument. I want people to be able to buy this horn and not have to think they are going to need a step up instrument a few years later. If your budget is around $650 this can be your one and only main instrument no matter what level player you are. This truly is a fantastic horn and I’m excited to finally get it into your hands!
