Trevor James Alphasax in lacquer

Unique Design

 
The new Alphasax is based around the original body tube of an alto saxophone with completely redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning.  This ensures that the desire that the instrument looked and played like a normal alto sax was kept.

Key and Mechanism

The Alphasax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books.  New and innovative mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger
positioning of a normal saxophone.

 Key and Mechanism Detail

  • The left hand palm keys for top D#, E and F have been removed.
  • The top D key has been adjusted to fit small hands.
  • The low B & Bb keys have been removed.
  • Redesigned G# and low C# keys are now easier to reach.

  • Redesigned low D# and C keys are now easier to reach.

The Alphasax Solution
