Built on strictly modernistic lines, the striking beauty of the instrument immediately catches the eye. Every key is a new design. The high D natural and D# keys are of an entirely new design, fitting the hand naturally without fear of losing control of the saxophone.
A roller on the D# key enables you to move easily from G# to B natural and Bb. The low B natural and C tone holes are on the upper side of the bell, so that these tones are not muffled by being against the body of the player, which also clears all the lower keys.
