Jay Metcalf Profile with Better Sax

A Unique Partnership

Jay Metcalf has partnered with Conn-Selmer, the leading wind instrument manufacturer, to develop and design the Better Sax alto saxophone. The result is a unique and affordable instrument that plays great, looks great and is dependable. We set out to create a financially accessible horn that students, teachers and players will love and we believe there is no better saxophone in the marketplace at this price point.
