Dear Mr. Allen,
When my mom told me I was getting my very own saxophone, I didn’t believe her, until yesterday when the box arrived. I opened it up and was so EXCITED to see this beautiful shiny awesome sax! I brought it to school today and played it in my band class, it sounded GREAT! It definitely a much better sound than the saxophone I had before. I also LOVE the convenient straps on the case! Thanks again!,
