    You can get him a good student model horn for not too much cash. I have one for sale if you're interested in a good, used student alto sax. It's a King Empire alto in excellent shape & plays well. (w/case, mouthpiece, neck strap). I'm asking $325 (incl. s&h). I recently had it in the shop for minor adjustments & proper set up. It's a good horn for a student to intermediate player. If you're interested I can e-mail a few pics. Mario {sax_rap2@yahoo.com}

      what price range? just remember, with beginning saxes, typically you get what you pay for. as soon as you get to a certain point, there are other influences on the price, but thats not a big concern with beginning saxes Choose several saxes for him to try, and have him play them all. he chooses the one he likes the best. dont get suckered into "deals" always research before you buy a new horn.
