The LJ Hutchen Eb Alto Saxophone Features

 

Key of Eb (E-Flat)

The LJ Hutchen Alto Saxophone is in the key of Eb. The majority of student musicians learn to play on an alto saxophone, and some will later switch to tenor, baritone, or soprano saxophones.

Heavy-duty brace to prevent misalignment

Heavy-duty brace to prevent misalignment

It is no secret that students and young musicians are not always as careful as they should be with their instruments. While no instrument is impervious to damage, our heavy-duty bracing system helps prevent misalignment that can occur from heavy use or from getting knocked around.

Ergonomic metal thumb-rest

Ergonomic thumb-rest

The thumb rest offers the right-hand thumb a point of reference, allowing the right-hand fingers to be placed easily and correctly on the keys. The thumb rest on the LJ Hutchen Alto Saxophone was designed for ultimate alleviation and comfort.

Carefully designed pinky keys to accommodate young hands

Carefully designed pinky keys to accommodate young hands

While all alto saxophones have a similar size and shape, not all share identical key layouts. We’ve taken extra care in designing a pinky-key configuration that is easy to reach with small hands, but won’t impede upon players with larger hands.

Specially treated pads for durability

Specially treated pads for durability

The function of a saxophone pad is to cover the tone hole and seal air into the horn, for an easy and accurate response. LJ Hutchen saxophone pads are specifically treated to resist moisture and every day wear and tear. .

Comprehensive 2-Year Warranty

Each and every LJ Hutchen instrument comes with a comprehensive 2-Year Warranty. The warranty covers everything except damage from neglect, theft, or loss.  In some cases, if warranty work is required within 30-days of receiving your instrument, we will exchange it for a new one (including shipping both ways). After 30-days, the instrument can be mailed to us for repair. Our repair department will repair and return your instrument within 24-hours, which allows us to achieve a turn-around time comparable (if not faster) than a local music store.  Free adjustments and maintenance are also covered throughout the warranty cycle.
