About two months ago, I asked for opinions on which sax to buy. I own a Selmer Bundy ll and had problems with the intonation. My teacher told me it was the horn. I had it repaired twice at a local music store and it still sounded bad. I started taking private lessons with a retired college music director. He gave me a name of where to get it repaired and it sounds great. I have to work twice as hard to get the desired sounds, but they are there. Several of you out there told me that if I could get that to play, I could play anything. Well, the professor agrees with you. I am outplaying many who are much older on a boring, ugly, Bundy ll and it is fun. Thanks for the advice, my horn sounds most impressive with the right reapirs.
