Re: Best Bari Sax For Jazz
The Yamaha 62 is the accepted standard by which all other modern horns are judged. Response, intonation, ergonmics, speed of action , build quality and reputation are all outstanding. They also hold their value very well.
Tha being said I play a Steve Goodson Bari that rivals the Yamaha. Other pros I know who have tried them also report that these are truly great horns built to last. Don't know if any are availalabe now though.
