Jazz Lab are best known for creating innovative products such as the Sax holder, Sax silencer and now the Sax deflector to aid all sax players both at home and in a live setting. The SAXDEFLECTOR is a new product for 2016 that will prove to be of great use to many players. It is in essence an acoustic shield that quickly and securely clips onto the underside of the bell. The shield is angled towards the player so the sound can be redirected towards your ears. This helps you work on your sound and articulation when practicing at home even at lower volumes and for better audibility when playing live, as it can be difficult to hear clearly at a gig. The angle can also be adjusted easily for a different heights of player and to affect how much of the sound is deflected towards you. This also allows you to practice quieter. There is a small hole in the shield to allow for sound to be carried towards the audience so it does not act as a mute your saxophone. It can be fitted onto soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones and can neatly be transported in a case or gig bag.

Why not five stars?
The only issues I've had are the screw coming loose on the clamp, but you can easily tighten that. And the clear plastic reflector came out of its mount and fell on the floor once. It easily friction fit back in, but I hope this won't be a continuing issue, but it's only happened once.

Yes, you can get the same effect by playing to a wall and, yes, it is a bit pricey, but for me, it's a great bit of kit that has really helped.
It JUST fits in my sax case too so is ideal for portability. I think I would have preferred a clip to attach to my sax, rather than a screw assembly. A bit too much fiddling about tightening etc. But at least it is secure. It seems quite sturdy and not prone to breakage. Time will tell. Now, fix that gap!
I would however note that the device has a weak point…the tab on the plastic reflector that fits into the clamp will break off eventually (or sooner) and then you will have to pay out the extremely high price for a new unit since the reflector is not replaceable. The clamp is very well designed but not worth the over fifty dollar price tag.
