I normally play a purple logo YAS-62 for alto, but would like a bar horn.

I found an A505-LQ on Facebook that is inexpensive ($150). Assuming the pads are good and it plays, I was thinking of picking it up.

I am unsure about the quality of these older horns and searching here and googling has not helped me understand the perceived quality of these instruments.

Does anyone have opinions on this model or advice for evaluating it (other than leak lights and play testing)?

Thanks,

Tom

Thanks Brian. If I do buy the horn I will give my impressions and then ask the opinion of the guys at PM Woodwinds.

I am officially leery after your tenor experience though.
