Suitable for School Bands

More and more school bands are now featuring brightly colored instruments amongst the assembly of traditional colors.

Masterpiece saxophones are a welcome addition to school bands, because they are easy to play in tune and attract more children to learning music.

What Do they Sound Like?

The Masterpiece range of colored saxophones all sound the same, so I have not recorded individual tracks for each one. The color of the paint does not make any difference to the sound. So a green sax will sound just as good as a gold one. The gold color that many saxes have is not due to gold plating, which would make a difference. It’s actually gold colored lacquer. The recordings below let you hear that this saxophone is not a toy, but a fully professional instrument.

Similar to the Yamaha YAS 280, but Only One Third the Price

This saxophone has the same number of keys as the Yamaha, and other famous brands. It sounds pretty much the same, and its weight is nearly identical to the Yamaha.

I’m a saxophone teacher and I hire and sell my Masterpiece brand saxophones to my students. Occasionally, I need to make a small adjustment, which involves tightening a tiny screw about 10 degrees. This is a small price to pay for the joy and excitement of playing on a shiny, brightly colored instrument. Admittedly, if my students were playing brand new Yamaha 280 saxophones, it’s unlikely that any adjustments would be necessary.

However, there won’t be any WOW! factor, because Yamaha does not make colored saxophones. Furthermore, their student model 280 costs $1480 – about 3 X as much as my Masterpiece brand. You can even find cheaper colored saxophones than the ones I sell, but I cannot recommend them because I have no control or faith in the quality.

When I first started offering colored saxophones I bought them from several different suppliers. Some suppliers sent me saxophones that were so badly made they were unplayable. I don’t buy from those factories anymore. Some of my competitors must be buying from them because those factories are still in business. Now that I have found a reliable supplier I still check every saxophone to make sure it is playable. Every Masterpiece saxophone is working perfectly when it leaves me.

The warranty I offer says that for 12 months, if you have any problem with the saxophone you can return it to me and I will fix it free of charge, or replace it if it’s unfixable. In 2013, St Peter’s Girls School in Adelaide hired a batch of Masterpiece saxophones for two terms and did not report any problems.


The body of this saxophone is made from genuine brass – an alloy of copper and bronze, then painted purple. The keys are coated with gold lacquer.

The mouthpiece is ABS plastic.

  • It gives a brighter, shinier finish, and
  • Nickel plating feels greasy to the touch, making the saxophone slippery to hold.

NO Packing Materials to Remove

Before manufacturers ship their saxophones to suppliers, they usually insert packing wedges to support the keys in transit. These wedges need to be carefully removed with tweezers before playing. The wedges are not always easy to spot. If you don’t remove every one, you risk bending the keys. Most suppliers of budget saxophones don’t bother to remove these wedges – they simply unpack your saxophone from a shipping container and send it to you. I remove all the wedges from every saxophone before I send it out.

NO Adjustments to Make

During transit from the factory, the last phase of seating of the pads occurs, as the pads become compressed into their proper position Tiny adjustments are often necessary when the saxophone reaches its destination. The adjustments are simple to perform, but if you don’t know where to put your screwdriver your saxophone won’t play at its best. Those suppliers who ship straight from the container and don’t even bother to remove the packing wedges care even less about fine-tuning your saxophone before you get it. I play test all Masterpiece instruments and adjust them for you so that they are ready to play when they reach you.

Why buy musical instruments from me?

I know a good saxophone when I see one. Since 1980, I have been a professional musician, teacher and author. I have taught hundreds of students i n thousands of lessons. I have written more than 60 books on how to play musical instruments that have collectively sold more than one million copies worldwide.. Masterpiece instruments are the same instruments that I recommend to my students. I sit beside them and listen to them play all day long.
