When do the Selmer Ref. 54 Altos come out? and I heard that Yamaha is comin out with a new line next year, is that true? If so do we know what it's gonna be called? Also do we know the prices on these saxs.
Much Thx

Ref Altos due spring 2003, not released so no sprice - guess same as Serie III + 25%.

Yamaha has a something underway combining features of YAS 62 and Custom. It has been debated on this forum recently.

Why no Ref 36 alto? Is it to keep BA prices high? If so, it sure is working.

The board moderator Miles Osland has posted a review of the Ref 54 in one of his threads.
