Re: New to forum
My advice would be just to try things out. The best saxophone for me may not be the best for you. You have to try it for yourself. I do, however, advise you to stick close to the following brands:
I, myself, highly recommend a Selmer or a Yamaha, they are my favorites. I also like Keilworth, they are German-made with dense metal that makes for a wonderful crisp sound. Yanagisawa is another fine saxophone manufacturer but I'm not a fan. Lots of people like them and think they're the best. I've only played a few but I like Selmer and Yamaha much better. Jupiter and Conn are a few more well-known saxophone manufacturers but I find the others to be much nicer. This is all a matter of opinion. Like I said before, it's all about how you feel. Pick the one you like best.
Also, what kind of sax are you interested in purchasing?
