Review of "Keilwerth SX90R"
This is Keilwerths latest tenor sax, and it is very nice to play. I'm not really clear on the improvements from the SX90 - it's supposed to have rolled tone holes, but I'm not too clear on what these are - this sax does play better than the SX90 though! It is supposed to have a darker tone than the SX90, but I do not think that there is a very big difference in tone.This sax plays easily, with little resistance, and has a good design of keywork, which fits nicely under the hands, and is very responsive, as well as having quite good intonation. I like the new slightly gimmiky feature that Keilwerth has put on the palm keys whereby you can rotate the ends of them to suit your needs.
The one problem with this sax, is that it lacks a depth of tone, and it sounds slightly dull - it sounds as though the horn is not alive, and the tone is not very rich at all. Although it may be easier to play, and feel nicer than some of the other saxes around, it lacks the lovely tone found in selmer saxophones.One of the coolest things about this sax is its finish. It is finished in black nickel, with gold lacquered keys, and it also has some fancy hand engraving - definitely the coolest finish that I have ever seen on the sax.
