Finally, a serious practice mute for Saxophones.

The only, world’s first, and breakthrough features and functions!

Reducing the output while maintaining the natural sound of saxophones.

At last, you can enjoy playing anywhere at any time.

Just put the instrument in the e-Sax, and e-Sax reduces saxophone output to a whisper at approximately -25dB. The acoustic lining material absorbs much of the sound whilst maintaining the full tonal characteristics of your instrument.
This natural sound can be enjoyed through the headphones - performing on your own or with backing tracks and play-along CDs.
* Though the sound is reduced, spare a thought for neighbours.

e-Sax beginners tend to produce more sound to compensate and this defeats the aim.
It can also make the instrument harder to play. With headphones at moderate volume setting the learner will soon develop a controlled quieter sound for even more enjoyable practice.

It kills “many” birds with one stone!
I was so impressed when I listened to the live sound through the headphones. It was really natural. Also, e-Sax gives me a recording and “Karaoke” opportunity. Not only does e-Sax reduce the output, but also enables me to kill “many” birds with one stone!
Finally, I can play the saxophone as much as possible without giving anyone any troubles! And, I highly recommend it!!

Instrument-friendly and Player-friendly design!

Adoption of special sponge and elastomer.

Saxophones are secured in e-Sax by three parts called Neck Supporter, Bottom Pad, or Bottom Spacer.
The elastomer material of Bottom Pad and Bottom Spacer will not affect instrument finish or scratch the metal surface, and the newly designed Neck Supporter holds an instrument more securely. These features make the performance more comfortable.

Japan’s state-of-the-art materials!

Both of Alto TypeⅡ and Tenor adopt an improved sponge material for the part called “Hand Packing”, and this new flexible material allows the wrists greater comfort and flexibility.
Also, the material of the pale pink felt inside e-Sax is a leading edge fiber. The fiber absorbs moisture 3 times compared to wool and 6 times to cotton, at the minimum. The characteristics is the highest value among the respective fibers. Besides, the felt is antibacterial and mildewproofed, so this is the perfect material for e-Sax.

Review

(Saxophone,Professor of Music education)

Certainly, e-Sax limits the motion of wrist, and it is hard to play the lowest Bb pianissimo. However, it is amazing that e-Sax reduces the sound of Saxophone to this level with the even and precise sound quality, pitch, and intonation. e-Sax is recognized rather as “Silencer” of saxophone in the market, but I think that its true value is a function as “Sound Transformer”, which achieves tonal effects. Actually, I enjoy the wonder sound from e-Sax itself, which is moderately reduced and quiet like a distant sound even though e-Sax has a sound module that picks up sound.Of course, disciplined breath control is required to play a good sound with e-Sax, so it should be an efficient practice, although it little limits a fingering exercise. e-Sax might not be fit forbeginners but should be a great training device for players at intermediate and further level.
