Aidis A803S alto saxophone
This is the Aidis A803S silver plated alto saxophone. It is a unique offering in the saxophone market in that it is manufactured by a flute company. The line of saxophones from Aidis is limited to altos and tenors. The craftsmen at Aidis Flute and Musical Instrument company make everything by hand. But, they employ state-of-the-art equipment in manufacturing the components. Instead of stamping the keys, which is common, they use a multi-axis CNC to cut each one precisely and consistently for every instrument.
The first thing that you will notice about the appearance of this saxophone is that it is elegant. The finish is perfect and the keys use pointed arms, exactly like high-end flutes, The instrument feels solid and precise. The tone is amazing. I don't get too excited about new saxophones, but this one made me say “Wow” out loud. The tone is solid and and pure and every note projects easily from bottom to top. Altissimo notes pop easily and intonation is great in every register. The closest sax that I have played to compare against is a Yamaha YAS62S alto sax. The Aidis A803S has a slightly more refined feel and more joyful, flute-like sound. Ergonomics are first-class with no awkward reaches or movements making playing fast passages possible.
The body and neck are formed from a 92% copper / 8% brass metal and then silver plated. The A803S is the premium offering in the professional sax offering from Aidis. The sax arrived in perfect playing condition. It comes with a very nice vegan-leather carry case. As would be expected, the Aidis carry case has a flute pocket. This is perfect for players like me – my primary sax is alto and my main doubling instrument is a flute.
The list price on this sax is $2199, which is a bargain when you compare to per instruments in the same segment from Yamaha and Yanigasawa. Delivery time is about three weeks.
