Rental is too expensive because 80% of kids who start band play for at least two years.  Our program costs about the same as renting if the student only plays for a year, but saves you $300 if the student plays for two years!
Why this is a great opportunity:
  • Our best-selling alto saxophone outfit costs less than rental by the time you're finished using it
  • This package includes any maintainence you need during the year at no additional cost
  • When you are finished using the instrument you have a Guaranteed Buy Back Certificate that is good for cash or trade
What you get with this purchase:
  • Our best-selling Strauss Alto Saxophone, individually inspected and ready to play
  • A hard case, student mouthpiece, ligature, and cap
  • A one-year manufacturer's warranty that covers how the sax is made
  • A maintenance agreement that covers normal repairs and adjustments for a year
  • We guarantee to offer you 50% of the purchase price as a trade-in, or 30% of the purchase price of the individual instrument as a buy back within 2 years.That's right:  we reward success.

We recommend THIS saxophone because it is durable AND is a better deal than renting.  Each saxophone has been individually and professionally inspected and adjusted by our Certified Repairman.


How is our high-quality Strauss saxophone different from other import brands?
  • Durability of the keywork offers more playing time and less frequent adjustment
  • Gold lacquer finish with clear coat will keep the instrument looking new longer
  • Metal resonators on the pads make the horn sound balanced and true, not lifeless like plastic resonators can sound

 Our new offering from Strauss, the 6117 Alto Saxophone features a gold lacquer body with high F#, rocking table keys and articulated C#. The Strauss alto saxophone is an ideal choice for the beginning student or intermediate musician looking for a quality new horn at the best possible price because, through our testing, we found it to play accurately in tune and be ergonomic for beginner's hands.

 A great sound at a great value, the Strauss Alto Saxophone is a free blowing horn with a good scale that teachers will a price parents can afford!  Stop renting and buy with confidence.  Music Educator approved, one year warranty.  Mouthpiece, ligature, and cap included!

We ship most of our stuff via UPS Ground because we bundle tracking and insurance, though it's rare that packages experience problems like damage or loss. Sometimes we use USPS to get a better deal on small stuff, and we try really hard to ship within 24 hours of your payment. Remember that we are closed on Sundays, and that UPS doesn't run on the weekends either - we'll send tracking info as soon as it posts AND we're open.

A real, live human will pack your purchase using its hands, so you might see a fingerprint here and there. Oh, and your item will come in a used box, with used packing material, because we re-use everything possible. It's part of our culture of Doing More With Less.
