AMASAX said:Way too much on above estimate:
BA alto - $2,000-3,000 depending upon condition, bit more if a true closet horn.
SBA alto - $2,200-3,500, depending upon condition. Closet horn, and/or high F# key, slight bit more.
The TENORs bring double or triple the above prices, but the altos prices have just never gone up...I know this cuz over the last year or so, I sold 4-5 SBA altos, silver plated, high F#, and two or three SBA tenors, all with F# keys.
