I've rented this sax for the last month and find it easy to play, even the low B-flat which is a lot of trouble for many beginners. I can play it quite softly in my apartment without it cutting out. Some pads needed adjustment even though it was new, but has worked fine since. No high F-sharp key. Tends to squeak a bit on high D-E-F notes.
