Clear

KGSSLS-ES B-Flat Straight Soprano Saxophones
With the soprano’s I decided to silver-plate the complete body and leave the keys lacquered.

*By leaving the keys lacquered the saxophone is easier to take care of and keep looking good than, if the saxophone is completely silver-plated… it has about 95% of the same tone and response caricaturists of the completely silver-plated saxophones.

*Over the years of being a saxophone repairman I have tried many different combinations of plating’s on saxophones… One of the combinations that received the most positive response was the combination of Silver-Plating the Bell, Bow and neck of the saxophone leaving the rest lacquered…. I did many YANAGISAWA Baritones, Several Selmer Mark VI Tenors and Altos and a few other brands….. After the great response and never any negative feedback I decided to make the ES & GIV saxophones with this combination of lacquer and silver-plating. In addition to helping the response of the instrument they look beautiful…..

Comparing the ES Series Kenny G Soprano Saxophone to the GIV & GVI soprano saxophones:

I am asked this question a lot… and will explain the main differences in the sopranos,

I designed the GIV & GVI sopranos using the left-hand little finger keys patterned after the Mark VI soprano saxophone. Kenny likes this style of key design…..
I used modern key designs for the Palm keys so it would be easier to go between the soprano and other saxophones.
I extended the range of the GIV & GVI to High G… there are 2 keys in the location for the High

F-Sharp and G…
The GIV has a brass body and keys with a silver-plated body and lacquered keys. Range: Low B-flat to High G
The GVI has as 85% coper body with brass keys and a champagne lacquer finish. Range: Low B-flat to High G

The ES-Series is a completely different soprano…. Range: Low B-flat to High F-Sharp
I designed it will all modern keys.. the left-hand little finger keys are the same design as Selmer and most modern saxophones. This makes it much easier to switch between saxophones.

I shortened the length of the soprano and reduced the range to High F-Sharp for more durability and consistent quick response

The ES has a brass body and keys with a silver-plated body and lacquered keys

I personal like this soprano for all around playing and going between all the saxophones….

***Mouthpiece Position on the Soprano Saxophone:

It is very important that the mouthpiece be pushed in or down on the neck cork a good amount for the soprano to play properly… this will of course vary a little but most players do not push the mouthpiece on the cork far enough.. The length of the mouthpiece will vary. If the mouthpiece is not on the neck enough then the results are *The lower register does not respond, *The upper or middle register can be flat, you need to find the Sweet Spot…

There are 2 different lengths of soprano saxophone mouthpieces:
1. The original *Short Shank, the new Super Session Selmer Mouthpiece is a short shank.
2. Many of the modern soprano mouthpieces are longer and need to be pushed on the cork a very good amount for the soprano to play properly.

*The saxophone Sweet Spot is where the mouthpiece is on the neck so the saxophone plays its best… When you find the Sweet Spot the response will be its best, the pitch will be its best, the tone will be its best.
*The saxophone is designed from the tip of the mouthpiece to the bottom of the bell, not from the end of the neck to the bottom of the bell… so, where the mouthpiece fits on the neck is very important. This is why we need to find the Sweet Spot..
