I know I will probably get a whole load of conflicting responses but i need some help.

I wil shortly be in a position to buy myself a sop sax. I have been using a loaner from a friend for the last few months but now I have to bite the bullet and buy my own.

I am very confused. of course I would love to spend several 000 of pounds but my budget is pretty much restricted to a max of about £1,500.

I have seen the Keilworth ST90 that is a good make but a student model. It is about £1,000.

However I have also seen several "pre-loved" ones for a similar price but if Intermediate or pro std.

What is the big difference between the student and inter/pro horns? What will I notice?

I bought my Yanagisawa S901 from an eBay auction by well-known Wichita Band Instruments (in Kansas) a few years ago for $1500.00. It was pristine and a fine saxophone. I've read good things about the Chinese Bauhaus (however it is spelled) but have not played one. I agree with Milandro though that good and cheap don't mix with sopranos. Could you find one like that? Maybe, but I'd much prefer to pony up the money and buy the best i could find. You don't need intonation problems as you struggle to learn soprano. DAVE
