high quality, low price soprano

I have been searching for a new soprano sax for the past week. I have found several models that look like good horns, but are a little out of my price range. Does anyone know of any cheaper brands of saxophone that are good quality? I have been looking at a cannonball, but i would like to find it for cheaper than $1,500. If anyone has suggestions of a different brand or a place to look for a cheaply priced high quality soprano, please let me know.

    the saxophone specialist at the saxophone shop in skokie claims the intermediate yamaha soprano is absolutely the best soprano around besides the much more expensive yani's- you can get it for around $1500

      By intermediate, do they mean the YSS-675 or the YSS-475? I tried a 475 and was terribly disappointed with it's tinny sound. Maybe the 675 has a little more beef to it.
