Correctly dating a buescher alto sax dating again after divorce with children

May I suggest if you are in the market for a used saxophone you look for a good used Yamaha YAS-23.

The Yamahas played great, but didn't fit my fingers the way I liked. I had a Mark VI and sold it to purchase the Series II. - You can find good vintage horns, but you may end up paying a premium for them when you can have something equally as good for less.

I know that some of you are thinking that this was blasphemy and all for the VI, but it was an old horn and the intonation on it wasn't that great. Not all old horns are bad, my '62 R13 plays wonderfully right now and the intonation is great! -pat Author: David Blumberg Date: 2005-04-04 The best, best bang for the buck currently is the Yamaha YAS 62 Silver Sax.

I've purchased horns from both and can vouch that they are honest, have good products at a reasonable price, and provide excellent customer service.

Feel free to write to me if you have more questions about the c-melody or vintage saxophones in general.

Vintage saxes can be okay, but they are just like vintage clarinets in that they will probably require a rebuild (unless already done) to get them playing correctly.

I think they are the best on the market for the money.I started out playing a Conn C-melody in 1954 (band director gave me oboe music) because some relative had one kicking around that I could use for free. The saxaphone majors in our Wind Symphony all play Selmer Paris, but they pay big bucks for them. "Almost as good, a lot less money." Author: pzaur Date: 2005-04-04 John, A couple of questions regarding your question. There are a lot of great old horns out there, but you will have to search for them. There's a lot of selection and they all have a different feel.With the "feel" part said, you'll want to get as many different horns under your fingers to first see which one feels the best to you. You can get a lot of information form Steve Goodson's web site (Saxgourmet). jbutler Author: Terry Stibal Date: 2005-04-04 I'd second the choice of a Yamaha horn as a first sax; best value for money that you're likely to find. Make sure if looking at a Buescher it has the orginal snap pads.I have a Conn straightneck and I constantly work to get the intonation right.
