Re: give some view on Selmer Mark VI alto and sba alto
Which one do you like the way it plays/sounds better? that really is all that matters.
Just becuase I like my SBA a lot, doesn't mean you would, or that the one are you are looking at is good (or you would like it).
If you like them both equally...then the one that is ready to go may have the nod- unless you could get the other tuned up and ready for a similar price. Note that if the SBA needs some work, and STILL plays/sounds as good or better than the VI...well, it seems pretty obvious then.
