On Castle Instruments:"No school is tougher on band instruments than our band. We have to send most instruments out for repair at the end of each year, but the Castles are tanks and those are the only instruments that stay here year round! They are heavy, very well built, and just stay in good repair. I recently played a Castle 4-valve Euphonium and it had a round, dark tone which is very comparable to other very high-end instruments."

Dr. David Kaysar - Director of Bands
New Britain High School

On Castle Instruments: "Castle saxes are great for classical and jazz! The key setup is more like a professional instrument, even on the Castle student instruments. We recently purchased a large amount of Castle brass and woodwind instruments including a beautiful oboe. I just love the tenor sax as I'm a sax player and I even played the Castle student sax in my last performance instead of my professional Selmer. I just love the Castle's intonation. Their student and intermediate instruments play like professional instruments, and not like any other student level instruments from any major brand. The low and high notes are rich and have a beautiful tone. The quality metal used is great and produces a meaty thud as all the pads come seated well."
