The JSax is designed and made by Nuvo, who specialise in plastic instruments. Others from their range include the Toot, Dood and the Clarineo.
What we say
The JSax is fairly new on the saxophone scene. Being a saxophone player myself, I know that you need to be a certain size before starting the full size saxophone, which can sometimes discourage small children from playing, as they have to wait until they are big enough to play. This makes the JSax is a great introductory instrument. To a child that is already playing recorder, the switch to the JSax minimizes to learning to press the keys rather than cover holes and learning the new embouchure. Pitched in C, it means that a child who is already learning recorder can pick it up and read the music they’re learning on recorder and play it on the JSax more or less straight away. They can also play together with other children easily, as they don’t have the problem of having to transpose, which they would have if they had a full size Alto saxophone.
