"Riga Winds saxophone is one of the best modern instruments, it has a huge sound, great response and the sound is even throughout the horn. While it has similarities with the famous Selmer mark VI, Riga Winds went even further and improved on the old design with for example the bell which is made from a unique material. And of course it comes for a bargain price, making this instrument really appealing for somebody who is searching for a good instrument priced reasonably."
As a professional saxophone player, you want to have a horn that brings diversity in your playing and allows you to be flexible in your sound, style, and your feel. ‘Pashkevich’ signature alto saxophone represents an experience that allows you as a musician to do whatever you want with an instrument and find new possibilities that have not been yet discovered before. The fact that I am able to try 3 different saxophone necks before my purchase, is amazing because that shows that Riga Winds actually value their product and care about their customers. It feels like Riga Winds are trying to find a perfect instrument for a perfect customer that brings totally different (new) experience to me as a musician.

You've created something extraordinary at Riga Winds. "The Beast" sounds and feels awesome. It also looks great. Well, it actually looks like a beast – it's unlacquered brass alloy body with a nickel-silver bell is a true work of art. The horn is relatively light, it's key action feels very comfortable. The well-thought-out design combines the best characteristics of Mark VI and Balanced Action models, but then, additionally, also some other secret formulas, those only known to the craftsman and his team. This is a great horn, at a very reasonable price. I warmly recommend.

Everyday I spend a lot of time not only playing, but also teaching saxophone. Music high school is one of the most important parts of a young musician’s development - it’s the time when one has to make an important desicion about which instrument to buy. And one has to take into consideration the quality of the instrument as well as their financial situation. I am very happy about this new collection of masterful instruments - they’re “alive”, they resonate, the vibrations go through the air and your arms. To add, the spectrum of the timbre’s quality is very wide - from chamber music until the lead alto in a bigband. The diversity of the saxophone necks, individual placement of the pads, suitable price - all these aspects make these instruments a very, very good solution for a professional musician’s career!
