Black Diamond Professional Alto Saxophone by Rheuben Allen:
The Black Diamond Professional Alto Saxophone is the same alto as the Rheuben Allen Series 8 altos but the finish is all Black Nickel. Model No. BDAS8
*2 necks, 1 with a traditional neck brace and 1 with the new Rheuben Allen Freedom/Power Neck Brace with Adjustable Sound Weights available.
*The Rheuben Allen High F-Sharp key design is unique to the Rheuben Allen saxophones. It is placed so that it can be reached with either the first finger of the right hand or the second or third fingers of the right hand. This makes it easy to use from the palm key or front F positions.
*The Rheuben Allen Fork or Trill F-Sharp key design is unique to the Rheuben Allen saxophones. The placement allows the saxophone player to use very little travel to reach the key making it easier to use than traditional Fork F-Sharp keys. This adds to the speed of using the key and reduces the tension in the right hand.
*The Rheuben Allen Front F or Altissimo Key design on the Series 8 saxophones is unique to the Rheuben Allen saxophones. This key has the ability to be set in a position that makes it easy for the individual saxophonist to pace it where it works best for them. It both slides back and forth and can be tilted for ease of reaching the key without removing the first finger of the left hand from the B pearl. This makes it much smoother when transitioning from the natural range of the saxophone to the altissimo range of the saxophone.
Beautiful lacquer finish.
Cordura Case with Back Pack or Shoulder strap.
Rheuben Allen Alto Mouthpiece made in the US
Everything needed to play.
*Great for players that love a dark projecting sound.
When you purchase this Black Diamond Professional Alto Saxophone I will donate a Count Basie Young Artist Series E-Flat Educational Alto Saxophone to a deserving young student in your name. You will receive a Thank You letter from me and the Rheuben Allen Education Foundation and a card will be placed in the clarinet case telling the student it was donated in your name.
This Black Diamond Professional Alto Saxophone will bring you many years of great playing and you will change a child’s life.
*You cannot deduct this clarinet donation since you are not really paying for the donation instrument.
