I play one. I really like it, the intonation is pretty good, flexable enough that I can adjust with minimal embouchure contortion. Sounds great with the Otto Link STM NY 7 mouthpiece I use.

The only negative really, and it probably could be addressed very quickly by a trip to the tech, is the feel of the G# key. It activates quickly and accurately, but feels numb and disconnected.

Very happy with my horn, and will be playing it on a paying gig this Saturday!

Good value.

I recently purchased one on Garrett's soprano saxes. I've had it for about a month. So far so good. Intonation is pretty consistent. I'm still searching for the right mouthpiece and reed combination. It cost me $699 and fills the bill for what I need. I've used it on three jobs so far and it has done the job. Compared to my other saxes, alto and tenor SA80 (the orig.) it seems to be a pretty close knock off. Cosmetically it looks good (it is a curved lacquered soprano.) I had some questions on mouthpieces and Garrett was helpful, even to the point of guiding me through making some modifications to the neck cork (the proper way to sand down the cork.) Dale
