Kenny G made the U.S. debut of his long-awaited line of saxophones in Anaheim, Calif., at the annual National Association of Music Merchants show, more commonly known as NAMM. The G-Series Saxophones and Educational Series Saxophones are based those he has been using for many years and was co-designed by Rheuben Allen, a Southern California-based maker and repairer of saxophones.
The G-Series soprano saxophone, tailored for professional musicians, comes in three versions and vary in price. The alto and tenor saxophones are designed for students, with the alto retailing for $1,495 and the tenor for $1,695. During the show, Kenny demonstrated his soprano sax line by performing “Sabor A Mi” and other songs from his forthcoming CD Rhythm and Romance. The CD will be in stores on Feb. 5th.
