Ultimate 52nd Street Sound

Introducing ETS852, with the Precision of DS Mechanism.

Same street.
New standard.

Designed in collaboration with Bob Mintzer

Developed exclusively with acclaimed saxophonist Bob Mintzer, Eastman’s design team has pushed the 52nd Street family of saxophones to a new standard of precision, elegance, and sound. With Bob’s insight into professional playing preferences, Eastman was able to create the horn Bob dreamed of: the 52nd Street ETS852 tenor saxophone.

Unlacquered elegance and precision

The classic all-American sound.

The ETS852 tenor includes defining features of the 52nd Street saxophone. Rolled-style tone holes, a larger bell, and an unlacquered finish contribute heavily to the classic American saxophone sound concept. A big, fat sound with indisputable core fills any venue in which it's played. These design elements are expertly paired with the patented DS mechanism—the keywork design that provides players with unrivaled stability and elegance.

Remove all barriers

The new M neck maximizes the fullest playing potential.

The design team didn’t stop there. Determined to create the best tenor saxophone, Bob and the Eastman team developed a new neck to draw even more out of this instrument. The “M” neck, for Mintzer, was born. This broad neck opens the ETS852 and leaves you feeling that the instrument isn’t even there – it's just you, and your expression of music.

Sum of the finest

The ultimate saxophone experience, designed by the most talented minds.

Through years of discovery and analysis, the 52nd Street legacy has grown to include its 800 series, outfitted with the finest of features and materials not seen anywhere else in saxophone design.

Rue Saint-Georges

Focused elegance.
