The Buffet 400 alto Sax has a range of features that you would expect on a top-end instrument. Superb for beginners and students, this instrument is a delightful instrument to learn with. The saxophone's consistent intonation as well as easy blowing response makes this instrument a top-class tool for learning music. A wonderful centred tone gives all students a flavour of professional saxophone sounds.
One of the first things you'll notice with the Buffet 400 alto sax is the improved mechanisms. The lower C, B, and Bb now have better stability on the lower register thanks to the doubling arms on the pads. The ribbed manufacture of the body concentrates the airflow of the instrument better, creating a free-blowing experience.
Often manufacturers of student saxophones will use cheap pads which can lead to playing issues in the future. This is why Buffet has used quality Pisoni pads on the 400 alto saxophone. Known in the saxophone world as some of the best pads you can get, these Italian pads will not let you down. Thanks to their high-quality construction, these pads will form a tight seal around the tone holes. What does this mean for you? Easier note production, better intonation, and an overall better playing experience. These pads are definitely going to make your life easier. This combined with blue steel springs creates an easy action that is ideal for children and beginners to learn on.
