    Hello all, I have a Yamaha Allegro Eb Alto Saxophone (YAS-575AL) that I'd like appraised. At first I thought to go through the traditional route and pay for an appraisal but I found this website and thought I'd try my luck here first. The horn was purchased in 2006-07 in brand new condition...

    Hi, I play flute and tenor sax and I've been looking around for another flute. I've been using this Emerson student flute for 6 years (since I began playing) and it definitely seems to be restricting me in terms of sound and technique, etc. My parents said if I looked around for an intermediate...
