Prelude by Conn-Selmer AS711 Student Model Alto Saxophone
The Prelude AS711 combines Conn-Selmer's long history of quality instruments with upgraded features to create a solid student saxophone. Though not necessary for beginners, this horn has a high F-sharp key, used to play higher notes once saxophonists advance to an intermediate level. Designed to make the larger, low register keys easier to operate, the AS711 is calibrated to easily manipulate the keys without sacrificing tone quality. The saxophone bore design allows for projection of tone and ribbed construction adds weight to the horn to help produce a full sound. It also has a reinforced connection where the bell and the body of the saxophone meet for extra durability. In addition, the Prelude saxophone is a great value under $1,000.
