what is the best electronic alto

Hi...I am 58 and want to learn the sax - but live in an apartment, so the noise would be too much. How about my buying an electronic sax?

Any good ideas on such an animal.

And, last...can a guy 58 actually still learn to blow this wonderful instrument... (never smoked so I still have some breath!)

Thanks, maybe this dream can still come true!

If you want to learn how to play a woodwind start out with a clarinet. If you can survive that then you can migrate to the sax. Real sax players are few and in between. It's nice to hear that someone your age is interested in learning a new skill. Cosmo

quiet sax playing?

I would suggest using a mute on a regular sax if you don't want to bother your neighbors. The electronic ones sound and feel too synthisized. In my opinion, if you want to make music as opposed to just making sounds, muting a real saxophone is the best idea......

Stick a towel down in the bell of your saxophone.Just far enough in to where you can still play your low register notes.That will mute it
