Ok, I know I've made enough of these posts, but what do you think of the Selmer AS210?
It's far easier to handle and play than my yas52, and it solves the problem with sound. I'm still not trading up, but around my senior year, my mother will get me a series III.
The Selmer I'm getting is 1100 used, but it comes with a C* and a meyer 5 hard rubber mouth piece. It comes with a very nice gig case, neck straps, and everything you need.
I've played it and I love the feel of the keys, but the whole sax stinks of axe...
