Just Launched: Pro Student Horn

Published:
Ted Nash PROJECT: Pro Student Horn Many young players can’t afford to own top professional instruments, which can cost thousands of dollars. Instead they end up buying inexpensive student horns that do not play well. It’s a shame some students, because of their economic situation, can’t play a good quality horn.

I am excited to launch “Project: Pro Student Horn” which offers great playing saxophones to qualifying students at a very low cost ($500). I have discovered vintage horns that play great but are overlooked. They have a great sound, solid mechanics, and good intonation. (By the way, I just recorded my last two albums - “The Creep" and “Chakra" - with two of these saxophones, and have been using them touring and performing with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.)

These horns are repaired and ready to go. The first five will come with a new mouthpiece, neck strap, cork grease, reed guard, ligature and cap. (I have worked with Beechler to design a mouthpiece specifically for this project.) These horns have a variety of small scratches and dents, like most vintage horns, but they are strictly cosmetic and do not affect the sound or playability.

I love these horns so much I am reluctant to let them go! ('m serious...)

“PSH” horns will only be available to those who cannot afford to purchase an expensive professional instrument and would be forced otherwise to play cheap, poorly made instruments. They will also be available to very young students whose parents are hesitant to make an expensive commitment.

I am starting with alto saxophones, and expect to do ten the first year. I will not be making a profit on these horns. For more information please visit website.
