The Black Diamond Professional Alto Saxophone - Designed by Rheuben Allen - Repairman to the Hollywood Studio & Touring Woodwind Players.
This saxophone is a great example of his ingenuity.
The saxophone has rich, dark, and smooth tone. There were only two in existence that were made from the prototype. We have the prototype in our office. This saxophone is taken by our staff to gigs, practice, and try outs to music teachers. It runs a close second to the fabulous RAAS6L - 14K Alto Sax.
The first one was bought by a collector who doesn't play (go figure)!

We finally got to play the newest line of the Kenny G Soprano Saxophone - 85% Copper Body - Model KGSSCL-GVI
The product was introduced at the NAMM show in 2017 and we are excited to be one of the first to take it for a spin. It plays with such a dark, rich, and full tone. The range is amazing and fluid key action..
The body which is 85% copper, and a mixture of brass with brass keys. With a Champagne Lacquer Finish, ribbed construction, newly designed High F-Sharp Trill Key and Harmonic (Front F) keys. The bore design is the same as the G- Series IV Soprano Saxophones, and it does make a difference compared to others.
The Saxophones are unique in design of the G-Series Saxophones, and features - Palm Keys and Upper Stack are a modern traditional design and the lower stack and left hand little finger keys are patterned after the original Mark VI. Of course it a Bb Instrument with a range from Low Bb to a high G. The accessories is outstanding besides the basics with the exception of the value added Kenny G KGSS-HRMp2 Traditional Chamber Mouthpiece, Rovner designed Kenny G Soprano Saxophone Ligature with cap, and a cool looking case..
More impressive with the hand engraving throughout the instrument, the color with the Champagne finish is unbelievable..

How to fix this problem:
The second option is to have the alto saxophonist play a first finger B natural, hold it for a while and then play the middle G or F-Sharp. This will allow the saxophonist to make the necessary adjustments to the embouchure when they hear the interval from the first finger B to the middle note.
*It is important to remember that the saxophone is generally an out of tune instrument. It is by the nature of the design that the instrument is always a challenge to play in tune. When you change a reed... when the room is to hot or cold.... a pad leaks... All of these things change the intonation of the instrument.
*The best way to play any instrument in tune is of course to...... hear it in tune! Practice with your tuner... now they do not need to get crazy with the tuner and bring it with them everywhere... When I see a guy get a tuner out before anyone has played I am pretty sure he cannot trust his ears.... use the tuner at home or just to get the first note where you need it.... then put it away.....
You must first hear in tune to play in tune.....
