Re: Alto Sax for High School Student
Yikes! Stick to the YYS... Yamaha, Yanagisawa, and Selmer. But, a lot of what you buy depends on how long you plan on playing. I've been playing for 14years and have made a career out of it. If you only plan on doing it for a couple of more years, I recommend a Selmer SAS280. It's slightly out of your price range, but if you buy a King, you will kick your self. Also, look at used horns, but make sure you're able to play them first, and bring more than one reed and mouthpiece when you try it out. Not all saxophones sound good with a Selmer C*80.
