"As a professional player, I am totally impressed with my virtuoso saxophones by RS Berkeley. The intonation feel, ease of playing, and key touches are excellent. I highly recommend these instruments to my private students looking for an affordable, professional instrument that will last them for a long, long time. Since I own three of the saxes (two altos, one tenor and alto flute) you can tell I appreciate the integrity of the workmanship on these instruments. Love my virt’s!"
