Applications and Characteristics:

Many baritone saxophones below professional models have mechanisms that are ponderous to play and aren't very satisfying musically as they offer only a basic tone and limited dynamic range. This instrument offers a mechanism that is light and positive and which incorporates a full range of dynamic and tonal possibilities. Consequently it has not only been successful in schools, but also in the hands of very competent semi/professional and professional players. It competes extremely well against more expensive models. It is supplied with a 'student friendly' mouthpiece and responds well to the addition of a professional mouthpiece which will substantially increase its performance capacity..

"Just to say that I gave the Baritone Sax a good workout this afternoon and can say that it is a fantastic instrument. I also played it to DL and we were both very impressed with the rich tone and overall sound - very near to a Selmer (which would be around £7k!). I was also very pleased with the action and ease of all registers - it purred away on the lowest notes, even using subtone."

David F, Norwich - Professional musician

"Before buying it I tried about a dozen other makes and I must say it felt and sounded head and shoulders above anything in it's price range and was comparable to horns twice it's price. If you're in the market for a baritone sax, try the Cadence!"
Nick Lunt from Jools Holland's Rhythm and Blues Orchestra,

"The Cadence is outstanding in every way. The only difficulty in playing came from trying to blow whilst standing dazed and slack-jawed in disbelief! From the very first note, the instrument performed as well as, if not better than its competitors in the very highest price ranges. Bang in tune, beautiful bright sound and easy mechanism all adds up to an unbeatable package. Expect to see them on every street corner."
