Schill Saxophones

I have read many posts regarding the cheapness of a Schill Saxophone. I am the mother of an 11 girl who thinks she wants to play the saxophone. The company that the school goes through charges $450.00 to rent a horn for the year. As you all know, ebay sells these Schill saxs for about $250.00. I'm really thinking about getting her one of these because even if she decides after the year is over that she doesn't want to play anymore, I will only be out half the money. Given these circumstances do you think it will be an alright horn for a 6th grader for a year? Please let me know what you think

    I wouldn't recommend it. I can appreciate you wanting to save some money and I understand your idea here Saxgirl's mom, but the Schill saxophones are very poor quality, and do not play very well at all. I think the saxophone would would do more to discourage her from playing because of the poor quality. You don't have to spend top dollar for a SelmerSeries III, but a good student model Yamaha or a Keilwerth ST-90 would be a good horn.
