    Well, a brand I would suggest you look for would be a Selmer Mk VI, but that would only be perferred if you plan on going far with saxophone. For Intermediate Alto I would suggest a Selmer Mk VII, or basically within the Selmer & Yamaha ranges. Or if you have the money, a Yanagisawa would be teh way to go.

      You can get a really great professional horn for around $2,500. I played a Selmer Series II, a Yamaha Custom, and Cannonball Big Bell Global series (all altos). The Cannonball horn played better for me, and they're also better for jazz, with a larger bore bell. You can get one for around 2,500, but not online, from a dealer. They now have the Stone series, the newer version of the global series, and players like Branford Marsalis are starting to pick up Cannonball saxes
