Lev comments on his Sequoia saxophone:
As a soloist but even more as a chamber musician in saxophone quartets where I have been playing a leading role since 1999, I discovered the most important features of a good soprano saxophone. These are for sure: perfect intonation, tone homogenity through whole range, easy mechanics, perfect tone control in low register and a wide dinamic range of an instrument. So after many years of searching and leaving with compromises I finally found an instrument which has all of the mentioned features: thank you my Sequoia Soprano Classic K91!!
