Cheapest Sax on Amazon VS My Professional Alto Saxophone

Ammoon/Lade Alto Saxophone (USA link) -
Ammoon/Lade Alto Saxophone (international) -

My recommendation for the Best Student Alto Sax Under $500:

I bought the cheapest student saxophone on Amazon to compare it to my professional Yanagisawa sax. I wanted to see what you get for $270 and the answer is you get quite a lot for your money. In this video I unbox the Ammoon (Lade) alto saxophone, we take a look at all the accessories included and I check the build quality and how well the pads seal. Then I play test it alongside my Yanagisawa A991 alto sax so you can hear the difference for yourself.
Turns out, if you're on a small budget, this Chinese saxophone is very good value for the money, and will serve a beginner saxophone player well.

Lade Alto Sax Review

Put this video together quick to give an idea of what you are getting if you buy this horn. It’s a cheap Chinese horn that can be found on Amazon and eBay. Does it play? That was my question. I was pretty surprised with this product.

This is my first review video, and I’m not a pro sax player by any means, as this is just a hobby of mine. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll give you an answer! Thanks for watching!

Sax: Lade Alto Sax
Mouthpiece: Claude Lakey Original HR
Ligature: Some cheap one that does the job.
Reeds: 2.5 Rico
Education: Public Schools, Listening to the pros, and practicing scales, Aebersold books, and using band in a box. Also by playing with other musicians.

My advice for others! I never really had the money for private lessons, so if you are fortunate enough to be able to get them, take advantage of it and get your money’s worth! Any opportunity you have to learn, jump on it. Whether it’s in school, at a college, a random jam session, books, google, YouTube, etc. It doesn’t have to be expensive to have fun playing music. And most importantly, be you behind the horn.

LIVE 😘 Unboxing a SAXOPHONE! 🎷

Today we unbox a saxophone... Why? Because I am a sax player! I learned how to play ukulele because my goal is to turn everyone in the world into a musician and the ukulele is the perfect instrument to do that with!
The saxophone was my first real instrument and my introduction to the world of music. I have never owned my own saxophone until today and I am thrilled about it.

I ordered this saxophone

This link will give you the different color options for it.

Fluke ukulele

I am so excited to share the Fluke ukulele with you. It is truly a beautiful and unique instrument. Hope you like it :)


Thank you so much for being here. I really appreciate it!

The BEST SAXOPHONE In the World... for me

Yanagisawa Saxophones are the best in the world for me. The build quality, sound, intonation, design, ergonomics and playability make them second to none in my estimation. In this video I tell take you through some of the differences between the 2 WO series saxophones Yanagisawa makes. The WO10 elite model vs the WO1 professional model.

★ Notes on Legere Reed Strength ★

On alto I normally play RSJ 3M, according to the Legere Reed Strength chart, I should be playing on a Legere Signature 3.25 I have one of those as well and it it's way too resistant for me.

According to their chart, the 2.75 Legere Signature reed I played in the video is supposed to be the equivalent of a 2H or 3S Rico Select Jazz.

The Vandoren Java 3 filed I played on alto was slightly softer than the 2.75 Legere signature but according to their chart, it should be harder.

For me the Legere 2.75 is more like a Rico Select Jazz 3H and the 3 would be like a Rico Select Jazz 4S.

I also have a 3, 3.25 and 3.5 Legere all of which are too hard for me to play.

On tenor I found the same thing. The 2.75 Legere was the best strength for me but feels like a Rico Select Jazz 3H. The 3 Legere feels more like a Rico Select Jazz 4S and the stronger reeds are much too hard for my setup.
