Octave system
Both ends of the octave key axis rotate in a receptacle that is coated to insure a smooth operation every time

Rocking table mechanism
The C# and Bb keys have a rocking table mechanism that allows for optimal speed and fluidity between these pitches

Double connected table key
Not only are the C# and Bb keys connected with the oscillating table mechanism, but the C# and B have also adopted this same motion

"Indented" white shell keys
A player's fingers will rest comfortably in the indented white shell keys. The white shells also enhance the beauty of the instrument while also preventing the player's fingers from slipping during technical passages

Metal thumb rests
Both thumb rests on the saxophone are metal to match with the style of the saxophone and the right hand thumb hook is adjustable so that the performer can customize the feel of their saxophone

Pointed pivot screw
The pivot screws that are used have a pointed end which facilitates an accurate center and precise action

Air-tight waterproof pad
The pads are completely air-tight which supports stability in playing and their life is extended thanks to being waterproof

Metal resonator
The metal resonators give clarity to the sound of the instrument in all dynamic ranges

Blue steel springs
Blue steel springs give the player quick response and are much more resilient than stainless steel (they also last much longer)

Tri-point balanced bell brace
The bell and the body of the saxophone are firm connected by a tri-point balanced bell brace
