I'm staying around San Francisco/San Jose for a while and was wondering if someone know of any major sax store worth checking.
There must be one around, but your experience will probably be a good place to start.
Just over the mountain (about 75 mi.) from the bay area in Modesto, CA there is a truly nice music store named Gottschalk Music Center
It's located at :
133 Burney St
Well stocked with Cannonball and Selmer saxophones and has tons of sheet music, etc. Well worth the drive over IMHO. Of course for a fairly cheap price, Southwest Airlines can put you into Las Vegas where you have 3 Kessler stores available! The flight is about an hour out of San Jose.
