Thanks for sharing that article, Mike. I'll share a +1 for TenorMadness and PMWoodwinds.New York prices tend to be a bit higher than elsewhere in the States, but if you're "happy to travel around the states," you could do a lot worse than to get in touch with Tim Moran up the road in Hamden, CT. He currently has two good-looking Mk.VI tenors at reasonable prices. [email protected].
A bit further afield you have Saxquest in St. Louis, MO. They're honest, provide great service and don't overcharge. I bought my curent Mk.VI tenor from them via the mail 5 years ago. It arrived in Australia in perfect condition and hasn't needed any attention since then ! I see they've currently got two Mk.VI tenors on their website, saxquest.com.
Then there's Brian Curry at Get-a-sax in N.Carolina - he currently has 9 Mk.VI tenors on hias website, getasax.com.
But first of all, read this article: Fourteen sax shops you should visit before you die
It's 10 years old, but mostly still valid. Good luck.
