Available in an alto and tenor saxophone, the 400 Series provides features typically found on professional models. The full rib design of the 400 Series provides a bit of resistance to help the student develop proper embouchure and breath-support.  The double bracing on the lower keys helps protect the keys from getting bent and helps ensure a proper seal from the pad every time.
