Re: F. E. Olds - Does anyone know if they make a good alto sax?
I'd sure like to hear from someone with current experiences and exposure to the "new" OLDS product line. How are they for sound and quality? I'm seeing a lot more of them in student/step-up offerings and all their saxes look interesting but very little data from people actually using them or repairing them. Who makes them? What is their "linniage?" How do they compare to LA Sax, Cannonball, Antigua, etc.,? Are they a serious "second line" choice if someone can't afford Yani, Selmer, Yamaha, Kleiwerth, etc.? Thanks for the input if you have current experience with them?
