Need advice on best tenor sax under $1,000

My primary instrument is clarinet. I also play alto sax (Yamaha 52). I have started playing with a big band and they have me on tenor sax. I have been borrowing a sax and now I really need to get my own. I have been looking all over the net and am now becoming confused by all the choices. I don't want to spend more than $1,000. Does anyone have any suggestions? How about the DC Pro Series?? Thanks!!!!

    in the under $1000 realm, the best advice I could offer would be to stay away from new instruments at or below that price. Used and vintage instruments would be a much better thing to consider for a number of reasons ranging from mechanical, to value retention, to the subjective matter of 'tone'. Used and vintage instruments may not be at their shineyest, but they'll likely please you more in the long run.
