“Indented” black abalone keys
A player’s fingers will rest comfortably in the indented black abalone keys. The black abalone also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player’s fingers from slipping during technical passages.
Pointed pivot screw
The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action.
Blue steel springs
Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)
Tri-point balanced bell brace
The bell and the body of the saxophone are securely connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace.
