New Altissimo Key Design
The harmonic key that comes on the "E-Series III" soprano saxophone (as you can see in the photo) opens the Palm E key to product the front F or bridge the fingerings between the natural range of the soprano and the altissimo range.
Option No. 2...As you look at the design of this key - it opens the Palm F key to produce the Front F or bridge the gap.......
The "E-Series III" is of course the first soprano in production to provide the saxophonist with this feature and choice of altissimo key designs.
All the saxophonist needs to do is unscrew the harmonic key rod... pull off the harmonic key... replace it with the second harmonic key and screw the rod back.
First to copy the bore of the soprano Kenny plays very closely. Rheuben Allen made only a few minor adjustments to the hole placement to improve the intonation and response. These slight adjustments in the bore now allows the instrument to have better intonation with either the short shank or the new very long soprano mouthpieces.
The NEW “E-Series III” Soprano is slightly shorter than the original soprano with a completely different bore design.
Two Different Harmonic Key Designs come with each soprano.
It is considered by many great soprano saxophonist that the Mark VI style body sopranos should use the Palm E key to product the altissimo or harmonic notes on the soprano and no the traditional High F palm key.....
When Rheuben first saw Kenny play, he noticed Kenny G uses the palm E key to product the notes bridging the gap between the natural range of the saxophone and the altissimo.
Kenny G's Soprano Saxophone has a natural range to High F.
Rheuben Allen gave Kenny two prototypes to try one with traditional high F Palm key being opened by the harmonic key and the other opening the Palm E key. He said he liked something about both.
The altissimo key option of the NEW Kenny G “E-Series III” sopranos gives the soprano saxophonist the choice for the first time of an altissimo key that fits their style and mouthpiece combination.
Key Design and Range
For the key design Rheuben decided to combine the good features of the two original sopranos. They took the upper stack and key work design from the original “G-Series” making the soprano feel more like a professional soprano. They used the palm key design from the original “E-Series” as it is a modern design making it easier to switch between alto and soprano or tenor and soprano.
Keyed to the range of high G
****Purchasing a Kenny G “E-Series-III” Soprano Saxophone is not a guarantee you will sound like Kenny G. Each saxophonist has an original tone that they produce from any given instrument. The only way to sound like Kenny G is to practice. Having the same instrument design as the one Kenny G plays will give you a better chance, but again it will not guarantee you will sound like Kenny G.
