Re: New Band, New sax?
yes the eternal question, ( i'm battleing with it myself as we speak...or...as i type, rather...) "should i get a new sax."
i got into the top band at my high school on my student horn, when it was working fine.

then the next question.
are you planning to play outside of high school?
if you find that you are having some major problems with your student horn, theni agrtee wholeheartedly that you may want a new horn. ( my situation.)
if you find that you are willing to pay a lot of money for a new horn, then i agree sympathetically that you could get a new horn. ( my situation)
and if you are planning to be playing a lot over the next few years and out of high school ( perhaps in a community band) then i agree completely that you definitly need a new horn.
