690TBS Tenor Saxophone – Black Nickel

Designed for saxophonists of all ages and performance levels, the Jean Baptiste 690TBS Tenor Saxophone is a fully-featured, step-up instrument that truly shines in a lead or ensemble setting.

The 690TBS features a newly designed neck for superb projection and intonation. This neck makes the 690TBS free-blowing and responsive, so a beginner can effortlessly produce tone and enjoy the instrument. Keyed to Bb, the 690TBS features a yellow brass body and improves upon our standard 290 series with upgrades such as fully-ribbed post construction for improved reliability and stainless steel pivot screws to prevent corrosion. In addition, its blued steel springs offer maximum durability and quick, comfortable action. The 690TBS is also beautifully engraved and has a black nickel finish with silver keys. The 690TBS is packaged with a protective case and an American-made mouthpiece. Every Jean Baptiste tenor saxophone features high-quality Italian leather pads for a proper and lasting seal.
