The pro saxes are made out of the best brass, have years of research and high technology built into them . They are created to respone quickly with tremendous sound - tone in all the registers (High- Low- Middle). A great instrument sounds great playing softly ,or loudly , or whatever the pro player or advance student is trying to perform ,with the least effort .
Finnaly , a great sax ,make a good player excited to perform , practice , record or whatever .
A cheap horn like a cheap automobile will work for a student . Like a high end car such as a Mercedes or a Lexus , is a long way from a VW Bug,Pinto or Dodge Dart .
Many Vintage saxes are incredible players , and since they are no longer made , often cost more , Such as the Selmer Mark VI saxophone .
