Re: Selmer Soprano Series III or Yamaha YSS-475II
thank you so much for your response... I just wrote about 30 minutes and I lost it.. so I will have to be more brief...
I am committed to starting with a soprano.. all the arms length contacts, like you have encouraged the alto, but why drop 2 grand on an alto and then start over.. the teachers suggest that with commitment, I should be able to do the soprano... correct me if I or they are wrong..
it comes down to.. i can get a selmer III for 3.3 grand... new.. from a retail store... versus a 475II for 1.8 grand.... I simply want to play... which will be easier to learn on? I am not worried about the cash.. I just want a nice sax that I can learn to play on.. 10 or 20 years from now.. maybe pass it on to my nieces...
are there challenges with the series III as suggested on the internet?
certainly inherent value of the selmer is attractive.
thanks so much for your response.
