Re: Best Sax?
I'm not entirely convinced that the Selmer III is the best on the market. I've noticed some inconsistencies is quality in the Selmer horns over the last ten years, and am not real sure that a Selmer would be my first choice at this point. Yanagasawa makes a very high quality horn at this time..Yamaha is always worth looking into..The Buffet horns can be very nice, if you're looking for the dark sound, and can find some one who carries them..all in all, it's the particular horn that lights you up..I find the Selmers from the eighties and nineties to be more to my liking..try as many horns as you can..forget about the brand names, and trust your ear..you can tell what you're hearing. Good luck in your search. Oh yeah, check out the Yamaha '62's from the eighties and nineties...smokin'!
