    I'm not sure how much these soprano saxes cost, but I really like Antigua Winds. My dad got me one, and it plays really well. My teacher is a professional sax player, and he told me that he really likes it. My teacher has a Yanigasawa sax, which he says plays really nicely. If these two brands are too expensive, then I'd just stick with Yamaha. Kara

      Best price on Antigua... I remember a member Saxman saying the shop he worked at sold those really cheap. I put his name as the subject, so maybe he'll see this and talk to you. If not, try and get his email.

        I second the props for an Antigua Wind soprano, I have the YS590 and I'm not looking back. I wish I could get a tenor the same quality of my antigua soprano for lesser price (as is the Antigua soprano). GO for it.

      i have an antigua winds alto and soprano, the alto is a good horn, and my soprano is great, and i paid 700 for it, i got them to come down from 1200 but its a really good horn for the money
