Designed for easy playability, this alto saxophone ensures a comfortable playing experience thanks to its responsive nature and smooth blowing mechanism. Its lightweight build and manageable size make it an excellent option for young or novice musicians who are looking to learn the saxophone for the first time.

The Difference Between Alto Saxophones & Tenor Saxophones:

The most obvious difference between the two instruments is their size. The alto sax is smaller and lighter than the tenor sax. As a result, the alto sax produces a higher, brighter sound, while the tenor saxophone has a deeper, more mellow tone:

  • Alto sax range: Alto saxophones are in the key of Eb. The range of the alto sax in concert pitch is Db3 to Ab5
  • Tenor sax range: Tenor saxophones are in the key of Bb. The range of the tenor sax in concert pitch is Ab2 to E5

Due to its smaller size, the alto saxophone is the perfect choice for young beginner musicians. It’s well suited for smaller hands, requiring less of a stretch for the fingers, and it’s also usually much more lightweight than its tenor counterpart, requiring less airflow.

The alto saxophone is the solo instrument of choice for classical music, while the tenor saxophone is arguably the most popular solo instrument for jazz musicians.

Your Alto Sax Adventure Begins Here, Let Us Lead The Way:

The McNeela Beginner Alto Saxophone is the perfect instrument to help you get started on your musical journey. Designed with playability, durability and affordability in mind, it's guaranteed to help you play your first notes with confidence. This beginner friendly instrument facilitates maximum airflow with zero leakage, offering an even, balanced performance throughout all registers, and good intonation. With this alto sax in hand you'll see results in no time at all!

The instrument's smooth response and bright clear tone are well matched by its sleek gold lacquer finish. In addition to giving the saxophone its characteristic traditional good looks, the gold lacquer will protect the brass from surface corrosion, as well as minor scratches, ensuring your sax stays looking like new for as long as possible.
