Brian & GetASax: Truly great service! First of all, Brian found what I wanted (Selmer Supreme tenor) MUCH faster than any of the 5 or 6 other places I tried. Then, the price was a bit lower than some of the others. Also, he kept in touch via email throughout the entire process so that I always knew what was going on with the order. Maybe best of all, he did a fantastic thorough setup at no charge since I got the sax from GetASax. I can't think of anything I wish had gone differently, from first inquiry to delivery.
Selmer Supreme Tenor Sax: Absolutely fantastic horn!! Easy blowing through whole range of the horn including altissimo, most in-tune horn I've ever owned, gorgeous to look at, and sounds great.
First, thank you Brian for the courteous and timely manner handling my purchase. As a full time tenor man playing a solo gig 5 nights a week, consisting of 250 standard, jazz and oldies tunes I was hoping for a great smooth playing, reed friendly and slightly darker piece than my current mouthpiece. The Reso7* FG is just that. I'm a believer that your "sound" is a most important aspect of your playing and effect on your listeners. *****
does it all!
Brian was congenial, knowledgeable, prompt and thorough from the first contact to the end of the transaction. I have left my older Selmer alto saxophones with him for the opportunity of other fine musicians to be a custodian for two wonderful instruments made by master craftsmen of the past. One 73 and one 85 years ago. Live on! Music is a blessing.
It’s important to me to leave a review for Get-A-Sax.
I’m an international customer which complicates everything and in the world we live in it’s foolish to part with your hard earned money without diligence.
I will say I had bought a mouthpiece from Get-A-Sax in the past some years ago for sub $100 so thats all the experience I had.
But this King Super 20 purchase was way more significant in terms taking a risk.
Brians communications to my enquiries were brief. I didn’t know how to take that and I worried a bit. The worry was completely unnecessary and I would not hesitate to come to Gat-A-Sax again if I’m in the market for anything.
I get it now…..
There is no need for lengthy drawn out communications if the item is what you want.
The website of course gives you comprehensive and accurate pictures and I always accepted that but then you start to think about shipping costs and how it will be packed etc. so plenty to contemplate and you think you could use some reassurance.
Well let my review reassure you.
The sax verses the pictures = Exact
The shipping = quick and not cost prohibitive (2 days door to door to the UK)
The Packing ? Well there is an article on the Knowledge section of the website that I stumbled across after I’d already committed to the deal. Read that and if that doesn’t put your mind at rest nothing will.
You see this is clearly how Get-A-Sax do business 100% of the time. What you see is what you get and lets face it what you see is excellent stuff.
If you see something you like and are serious about it JUST DO IT.
i've played the FG reso 7* and the 7 Slant replicas.
the resoFG has a really good tone. low frequencies are gorgious !
the Slant is powerfull as an OL doesn't.
i'll try a 7 (100) Resochamber.
I have bought several instruments from Brian and also sold him a couple. Brian is very honest and straightforward, and the horns I got from him are always in perfect condition, and shipped in a super protective packaging so that they play perfectly upon receipt. If you are interested in one of his horns, I would suggest to contact him before hand and discuss it. He can give advice on whether or not the specific instrument you are considering is the best for what you want/need. He also has a tremendous knowledge of saxophones and of the market, and he sometimes knows of horns available that are not even listed on his site. Also if you are interested in selling he sometimes knows people who are in the market for specific models. Finally his 3D printed mouthpieces are awesome...So very happy with my purchases and will come back if I ever need another horn.
We had a great experience purchasing my son's intermediate sax from Get-A-Sax. The instrument was in great condition, shipped quickly, packaged well (more on this in a moment), and communication from Brian was great. Would work with him again in a second and are so pleased with the new horn.
I did want to share a note that might be helpful for other inexperienced shoppers out there (probably a small percentage of users here, but hope to save another kindred soul from a bit of trouble). The keys on the sax were very carefully secured with wedges of cork to keep them in place during shipment. My son, in his eagerness to play his new instrument, ended up bending two of the keys as he was trying to figure out why the sax wasn't working right and started pulling on the keys. This was totally our fault and just required a quick fix from a local repairman. Be sure that you know what you are doing, though, before you try to use the instrument. I wish we had let his instructor inspect it first!!
I just purchased the GS New York Meyer 7 Alto Mouthpiece and was blown away by how it plays. I have played a New York Meyer from the mid '50s for over 30 years, and Brian's copy does everything my original Meyer does plus a lot more. The articulation on Brian's copy is super crisp, and plays doodin' jazz articulations effortlessly. And it plays in tune! It is also a versatile piece and capable of producing a wide range of tone colors from subs to screamin' altissimo. And it plays in tune! (worth repeating) It lives up to Brian's description in every way, and I couldn't be happier with it.
The best alto mouthpiece I have ever played! It has everything, every color, every nuance. I have had great experiences with Getasax. Everything they sell is top notch, and high quality.
