Re: Sax help
Mikeand: My advice, which will be similar to others' on this forum, is to buy a sound vintage horn. For what you'll end up paying for a new intermediate instrument (either as a purchase or a rent-to-own), you can buy an older Conn, Buecher, or Martin, to name a few, have a pro-horn, and not lose any money should you decide to sell it in the future. There are many reliable online dealerships (Saxquest included) that will sell you a gorgeous, completely reliable vintage horn for a reasonalbe price. You can also check ebay, but do plenty of homework first, and count on adding about $350 for repad work and regulation. I'm 54, been playing for 3 years, and love it. Go for it, and best of luck.
