Public Notice: 4.28.2016
There are manufactures in Mainland China making saxophones with the Kenny G name on them. These Kenny G saxophones are not authorized by Kenny G, Rheuben Allen and/or A & K Global Enterprises, Inc. the parent company for Kenny G saxophones.
The Chinese government does not regulate or protect the use of names and anyone can use any name they want on a product. The government offers no protection for names or designs.
These companies sell these instruments keeping the money and the quality is very poor.
A & K Global Enterprises, Inc. does not warranty any of these instruments nor do we authorize their manufacture or the use of the brand name Kenny G.
The only way to get a real Kenny G Saxophone is to purchase it from an authorized dealer and those names are on www.kennygsaxophones.com for the US market.

How much does Kenny practice? I have talked to Kenny about practicing and he spends at least 3 hours a day practicing now.
Kenny told me he missed an interview by phone once because he was practicing. Later when they finally did the interview the person interviewing Kenny said that was a good reason for missing the phone call.
Why is my saxophone hard to play in the bottom register?
There are several things that make a saxophone hard to play in the bottom register. The No.1 problem is most saxophone players do not push the mouthpiece on the neck as far as they should. There is place called “The Sweet Spot” on every saxophone neck where the mouthpiece goes that makes everything play great. (Or the best that instruments can play) You must find this “Sweet Spot” and learn to play the saxophone there. So try to push our mouthpiece in a little and see if the bottom register plays better. There are extreme cases when the Bow or bottom of the saxophone is drawn too large and the bottom end tends to bubble or gurgle. If that is the case drop your mouthpiece cap into the bell and se if the bottom stops the gurgle. If it works then you can have your repairman fill the bow and make it slightly smaller. Also if the instrument leaks the bottom might not play well…
Where are Kenny G saxophones made? The new G-Series saxophones are made by a Taiwan company we do not make any G-Series saxophones in mainland China.
After many years of looking at factories we have chosen a great factory in Taiwan to manufacture the Kenny G Line of saxophones.
We have some saxophones from the old E-series that are still new and play good. These saxophones are still available on this site under close outs they are sold as is and if there are any defects like small scratches and or show ware and tear we will put that on the page.
Thanks for thinking about Kenny G Saxophones and we hope you will find something that will make you happy.
