currently i own a P. Mauriat PMXA 67R, i really had to stick out a limb for this sax since it wasnt a big name like a yamaha. at the time i bought it (about 8 months ago) i had a budget of $2000 and came in at $1800. theres been serveral times where i felt this sax isnt what i need to get serious, now my director has a series I for sale and it's driving me crazy! he has had it for several years now, he bought it for 2900 and it needed work now he's selling it for 2800 nothing needed. my private teacher (who happens to be my directors former teacher) says that it plays like a dream. i know i should try it first but i have a feeling that if i jump the gun now i'll get taken over by GAS:!: i think if this sax really is the one then i can either work something out with my parents or sell the mauriat...am i just having a GAS "flash"? :?
