  • Super Six Testimonial - Errol Buddle


"Some important aspects of playing an instrument are intonation tone technique articulation and style.
The two most important are generally regarded as being intonation and tone. The instrument itself is largely responsible for these. Errol Buddle - Super Six - Tenor
The John Lehner Super Six Bird models have both excellent intonation and tone which is beautiful and warm with a bright edge. This is great when you need to get it "OUT THERE", with great projection.
As for the feel of the keywork, there are none better than these saxophones. These horns are unsurpassed value for money and I find them equally great for jazz rock or classical music.
Because of these qualities I consider it a joy to play these instruments and it gives me a feeling of great confidence".

  • Super Six Testimonial - Andrew Oh


Andrew Oh "After playing the John Lehner Super Six Series of saxophones, I must say that I was very impressed with these instruments. The saxophones are solidly built and the finish is impeccable with fine attention to detail.
The tone is warm and rich, the intonation I find outstanding and the mechanism very comfortable to play. They also come in beautifully made cases. If you like the Selmer Mark VI's then these saxophones are the closest to the Mark VI you can buy on the market today.
I would definitely recommend these instruments to any serious lover of fine craftsmanship. They are very classy instruments all round."

Super Six - Alto "John Lehner's Super Six Saxophones are superb!! The tonal quality and response, intonation and key mechanisms are simply outstanding.
John has successfully captured and recreated the classical elements of the very best Selmer Mark VI's I've played.

  • Super Six Testimonial - Rob 'Woody' Woodhouse


Super Six - Alto "John's Saxophones are responsive, sturdy and produce an amazing tone with fantastic intonation.
The new Super Six range are beautifully crafted horns producing results that belie their price. No need to spend thousands on that elusive perfect Mark VI, John's range is the solution.
The Altos fly in both jazz and classical music and the Tenors produce a big round beautiful tone with just the right amount of resistance.
There are simply no better horns on the market for the money."

  • Super Six Testimonial - Richard 'Bootman' Booth


"John Lehner's Super Six Saxophones are truly outstanding, the mechanism, response, intonation and tonal quality is exceptional. These Saxophones are as good or better Super Six - Tenor than the best Mark VI saxophones I have played. Everything is positioned perfectly on the instrument so that you feel instantly at home the first moment you pick up the saxophone. There is also a power and solidity in the instrument that makes you want to play and play, then play some more.
These Saxophones are right up there with the best Saxophones on the market today and represent fantastic value when compared to other top end instruments. Try one for yourself, you won't be disappointed..."

  • Super Six Testimonial - Dr Albin Berky


"I have tested the saxophones of John Lehner the Don Burrows models and the new Super Six Bird models which are even better. All the models are very well designed with excellent balanced intonation through all registers.
The fingering positions have a great feel and the sound is rich and warm especially in the low register. The models have great aesthetic design with nice engraved deisigns on the bell and throughout the body of the instrument. Super Six - Tenor
When I have combined these saxophones with a professional mouthpiece either Optima AL3 or AL4 with a Super Revolution BG ligature the quality of sound is very close to the ideal Selmer sound. Naturally, it is up to the individual player, whether jazz or classical to design the ideal sound themselves to bring surprising results. Considering Some of our academy students are playing either on Selmer Series 2 or 3 or Yamaha Artist - John Lehner saxophones are very close to these instruments with the feel of the fingering positions, key positions, key design and tonal quality. Many of our students are playing the Don Burrows and Super Six Models at the present time. Students are very happy with the instruments and after sales service which John Supplies.
After 25 years of cooperation with John Lehner I would strongly recommend these saxophones to anyone from beginners to concert level for all styles of music. You will not be disappointed... Great quality for a great price..."

  • Super Six Testimonial - Nick Negerevich


"For more than 40 years John Lehner has been actively involved in the purchase and maintenance of my instruments.
Nick Negerevich
I have continued to play on a John Lehner headjoint and in the last 10 years have added the saxophone to my repertoire.
I own a john Lehner/Don Burrows tenor saxophone and find its tone and ease of playing to my satisfaction. I have tried the Super Six range of Saxophones and find them to be better still - smooth fingering and the Tenor in particular has a warm and "friendly" sound.
These instruments are all very highly recommended."
