Some questions -
how long has your daughter been playing Sax?
is she a serious player?
does she like and want to play?
how much do you want to spend?

just learning? - don't spend a lot - you can always upgrade. Spendthe $$$ on lessons and then on the higher end sax.

music store guy says $3oo.oo no good
by: jerry

i have an etude tenor. it is not an expensive horn but plays ok. even if it is new the one you have may need some fine tuning. find if possible a sax player who works on saxaphones. it needs to be tested for leaks and timing. some of the less exoensive horns have not been properly adjusted even from thw factory. the independant repairman will give you an honest assment of your instrument because he is not primarily interested in selling new. the music store guy will run down your horn because he wants sales. also suggest you check woodwinds and brasswinds. they have some good sales and will always negotiate price. good luck. barlow.osier@gmail.com
