Straight Soprano Sax vs Curved Soprano Sax 

Obviously the first difference is in the look. Some people may prefer the look of one over the other, but the aesthetic difference also contributes to the feel and sound. It’s often said that from the players perspective the curved model gives a more immediate ‘feedback’. This is due to the bell projecting some of the sound back towards you. 

It depends on your situation. For example if it’s for a younger player (under 10) then the curved may be the best option as it’s smaller in the hands and might be a good step before the Alto Saxophone. 

If you’re already an experienced Alto/Tenor player then compare a straight and a curved back-to-back to feel the differences. Which one do you feel physically comfortable with and which ones sound do you prefer?

The soprano is the third smallest member of the saxophone family, which consists (from smallest to largest) of the  soprillo, sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, bass, contrabass saxophone and tubax. Soprano  saxophones are the smallest and thus highest-pitched  saxophone in common use. 

All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.  

At Odyssey, we recognise the significant contribution that an instrument makes to the willingness of a student to persevere, practice, pursue the process of learning to control and master the instrument, enjoy making music and progress. With this in mind all our Saxophone family have been tested in France at BG, and fitted with the best BG Ligatures possible for each instrument.

With a luscious polished brass lacquered body, offset with clear lacquered parts, the aesthetics of the Straight 'Bb' Soprano Saxophone from the Odyssey Premiere Series speak for themselves.  

A real eye catcher without doubt, but it’s also the performance to cost ratio that make this beautiful Soprano Sax a winner. Players from students to seriously professional musicians have commented on the excellent response, it has been designed to provide comfort and security when performing in the high register, while maintaining a beautiful warm sound in any range - with superb intonation.As with all Odyssey instruments only the highest quality materials are chosen in the construction.

Strong & Durable Body 
This instrument has been designed with affordability, durability and comfort in mind. The  body is fully braced  for strength helping it stand up to the demands of regular play and transport to and from lessons. The  adjustable thumb rest, bell joint, neck and stack adjusting screws can be used to make the set-up more comfortable. The saxophone's brass body is finished with a protective lacquer. 
 
Smooth Response & Tone 
Blue steel springs provide a  robust and durable  action and give a brightness and snap to the instrument's sound whilst domed reflectors aid projection. This Sax has a light, free blowing response that will reward new players with excellent intonation and a stability and evenness throughout the registers. Precision drawn tone holes allow maximum air passage through the instrument.  An auxiliary high F# key provides extra versatility. These features make it easy for students to start seeing results fast.
