Saxophone model choice

Hi all,

I have one Yamaha YAS-26.  Now, I want to upgrade to new one.  I prefer the Yamaha YAS-62III.  But my teacher told me the Selmer Axos will be better than Yamaha.  Does anyone can provide a comment on these two model?  Thanks a lot.

    I think your original idea is the better of the two.  The YAS 62III is a tried-and-true design and Yamaha doesn't want for quality.  Axos is an "intermediate" line introduced by Selmer, priced in the pro-horn range.  Selmer is not as consistent on build quality as Yamaha.  Axos is unlikely to have the same quality standards as Selmer's top-line instruments or Yamaha.
