Question about a conn shooting star alto and more..
As you can see from my username i am a trumpet player by trade (dont kick me out!)
but I want to learn to play sax too. My friend is selling a conn shooting star and i was wondering if you guys
could give me your opinion. Hes selling it for $150. I think thats already a good price, but i think i can get it down to
$100 or $120 is that good?
I Know that the shooting stars that have a "N" in the serial number are mexican made and not very good, i have not seen it in person yet so i dont know. If it does have a N, is that still a good price or should i just avoid it? and if it doesnt is this a steal? Also i dont know anything about sax parts and repair so are loose pads easily fixed and inexpensive or costly? How much would it cost me to replace or fix them?
Thanks for your time,
