FEATURES
Octave system

Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that
is coated to insure a smooth operation every time
 
Rocking table mechanism

The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that
allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these
pitches
Double connected table key

Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the
oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also
adopted this same motion
 
F-auxiliary key mechanism

Insures a proper seal of the pads when playing in the low
range of the saxophone
 
"Indented" white shell keys

A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented
white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty
of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers
from slipping during technical passages
 
Ribbed construction

Posts are connected to a single metal rib that is soldered
to the body of the saxophone - this adds to the durability
and longevity of the instrument
 
Metal thumb rests

Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match
with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb
hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the
feel of their saxophone
 
Pointed pivot screw

The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which
facilitates an accurate center and precise action
 
Air-tight waterproof pad

The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability
in playing and their life is extended thanks to being
waterproof
 
Metal resonator

The metal resonators give clarity to the sound of the
instrument in all dynamic ranges
 
Blue steel springs

Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are
much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last
much longer)
 
Double braced arm

Two separate arms connect to the pad cup to ensure
proper seating of the pad and improve the durability of the
instrument
 
Tri-point balanced bell brace

The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm
connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
