    The name Packer on any instrument, means excellence in construction. As with this instrument. This was played by a skilled friend. He could not believe that it could be improved, even with a dearer mouthpiece. When I - an amateur tried, everything just fell into place. It is the "friendliest" Sax I have ever played. Cannot go for a five until I try a different mouthpiece.
