son wants to play the saxaphone

My son is in 5th grade and wants to play the saxaphone. We're assuming they will start with tenor sax. What brand is a fairly decent one to get and should one buy or rent?

Thanks

Beginning sax
by: Anonymous

I'd suggest an alto for a beginning 5th grader. Less breath support required and easier to get around the keys. There are a number of reliable student horns. They tend to be a little more durable than pro horns and can be purchase new for around $600 or used around $300. Stay away from the chinese imports on EBAY. Yamaha; Bundy and Conn make reliable student horns
