I had the pleasure of trying the Empress tenor sax in Honolulu. The horn is free-blowing, in tune, even in scale, comfortable and rich in sound. The careful craftsmanship that has gone into it make this tenor a fine horn, and I would be proud to play on tour. The Empress is consistent from top to bottom, and the overtones are well balanced, allowing for easy altissimo and multiphonics. It is flexible and facile. It allows me to play the way I like to play.
