Re: buying a tenor - opinion
I would definately go with the Conn 10M. It's a much better sounding/playing horn than the Buffet. Buffet Clarinets are top of the line; such as the famous R-13, but their saxophones are more entry level. Plan on spendig a little money to have the 10M set up right and properly adjusted, maybe even a repad. I play a 10M all the time. There are some that play better, but nothing sounds better than a Conn 10M!
