The jSAX follows traditional saxophone fingering patterns and enables kids to develop sax embouchure and playing skills at an early age. It has a surprising mellow sax sound and is a lot of fun to play even for an accomplished amateur sax player.
The jSAX is pitched in C like all other NUVO instruments. It has a fully chromatic range from middle C to G in the next octave. For beginners with small fingers there is a set of plugs (training wheels!) which can be used to help seal the tone holes in the early days of learning.
The jSAX is lightweight and super-durable and is 100% waterproof making it very suitable for the classroom as well as a fun travel instrument.
The jSAX uses the standard Nuvo resin reeds with a 1½ and 2 provided with the kit. It can also use an Eb clarinet cane reed and some soprano sax mouthpieces will also fit. The jSAX comes with a durable blow-molded case, carry strap and fingering chart.
