alto saxaphone June 4, 2013
Reviewer: PAUL H STEELE from CLEVELAND, TN United States  
Really liked working with Odin, he was very helpful, and knowlegable. I got the sax at a great price and shipping was only 4 business  days. Very happy with the whole experience.Paul
The only problem I had was trying to send an email to get a price on a bari sax mouth piece. when I tried to send it said it did not recognize the address. Will call Odin soon, thanks
