Re: Learning Sax
It's great to hear from you and thanks a lot for your quick response. Let me introduce myself: I am a software engineer (in Wipro Ltd. India), as well as practising music for about 20 years. Now I am 24 in age and I am passionate to learn sax (whatever... if soprano is tough then tenor/alto, as u have suggested). Till date I have learned Indian and a western classical on Violine. Besides I play keyboards, Indian flute etc.
Now one problem for me is, spending a thousand dollar is pretty difficult for me, as I have found the Yamaha/ Selmar saxes to be costing more than $1000-2000. But I know that some used saxes can be found under $200. You are experienced in this field, so I guess you can help me to find out sax like that. Just now I have seen on CONN alto at eBay(I am forwading you that page), please have a look and let me know whether it will be good or not. Also I think you are professionally involved in this field, it will great if you can give me information about any used sax, whenever any comes in your knoledge, which and I can buy...I can afford upto $200. And what's about German saxes?
Reply me whenever you get some time. Don't mind for I am depending too much on you as I know almost nothing about saxes.
