The Growling Sax Debuts The Roar Limited Edition Professional Saxophones

Christian Wissmuller • Band & Orchestra • May 3, 2022

Victory Musical Instruments’ (NAMM booth 9528) brand The Growling Sax has released The Roar Limited Edition Professional Saxophones in Soprano (LE-TRCS), Alto (LE-TRCA) and Tenor (LE-TRCT) sizes. These modern, beautiful instruments offer musicians the ultimate in versatility by coming complete with two interchangeable necks, allowing saxophonists to change their sound seamlessly.

The brass neck provides players with a beautiful, soft and warm sound according to Melvin Quinones, ideal for jazz, ballads and R&B. They are even a great for those players looking for a classical sound. The 925 silver neck offers more edge and focus, perfect for pop, funk and rock. The Roar saxophones boast a modern ergonomic design and artisanal engraving on the body, bell, bow neck and keys.

“The Roar saxophones are perfect for the gigging, professional musician because the double necks allow them to change their sound instantly, all with one instrument eliminating the need for them to carry multiple instruments,” said company President and Founder Melvin Quinones. “Despite featuring a pure silver neck and beautifully engraved keys, these instruments are built out for a better value than competitor’s instruments. With these instruments, we are excited to be able to offer musicians the best quality they can get in a high-end saxophone.”

Award-winning classical saxophonist Jorge Puma shared his thoughts: “With The Roar saxophones I have felt real comfort, both in sound color and in tuning. While the standard brass neck gives you flexibility and ease when playing, the silver neck is great for depth of sound. A great color palette in a single model is what we find in these beautiful saxophones.”
