Old Saxophone

I've never played the Sax, or really had much interest in it, but I recently acquired one for free and can't resist trying to fix it up and play it. I think it's about 35 years old and it looks like it hasn't been played for 34 years. As far as I can tell it's in pretty decent condition - all of the keys work (one sticks a little bit) and there are no major dents or anything. Right now I'm in the process of cleaning and polishing it. I'm certain that all of the pads and corks will have to be replaced. I was wondering if that's something I could attempt to do myself, of if I should take it to a proffessional. Either way does anyone know how much that would cost? Please let me know if you have any tips for someone who hasn't got a clue what they're doing or if you think it's a hopeless cause!

    take it to a professional..you're looking at anywhere between $280 to $400..depending on the tech., and what kind of shape the horn is in
