I was in London (with my family) in August: Two visits at sax.co.uk and two at Howarth of London - tested 12 -15 tenor saxes, mostly big bore horns - went home with a very nice JK SX90R
The staff in both stores were very competent, helpful and pleasant!
Yeah, the SX-90Rs are scaring me too. I suspect some bad things could happen... But I'm more desperately on the market for a clarinet. Howarth seems to have more diversity than our local Buffet-Crampon monopoly.
My kids are (almost) grown-up, they won't come this time. And my best half will stick at .... the British Museum, with Ramses II and his friends.
