What kind of tenor sax should I look at to purchase?
I've been playing Bb clarinet for about 7-8 years (I'm in my mid 50's) and have become proficient in reading and playing (improvising) primarilty jazz tunes....both old time "trad" jazz, as well as more modern songs.
NOW, I want to learn Bb Tenor sax. I'd like to buy a used, GOOD sounding sax, but am not interested in paying thousands for a good, professional model. (Not interested in student models that can't get that deep, rich tone, or are more difficult, or just not "smooth playing", regarding the keys, etc.)
Any suggestions of where to start and is it realisatic to find a good sax in the $600-800 range?
