Anyone got any good suggestion on a soprano in the price range between 0 -1500 USD.

Brands like; system 54, thomann saxes, jupiter antigua, p. mauriat and so on

Gonna use it alot for folkmusic style.

My TK Melody straight soprano is a great player. I have had it for a few years now and sold my Selmer of Paris SA80 soprano after getting my TK Melody horn.

If you are considering a vintage pro horn, I have a Buescher TT with the roller G# for $1,450 shipped US. Considered one of the best sopranos.

I live in sweden so I don't know about the shpping.
I would say I am a semi pro. I study at a music collage in sweden and have been really interested in playing folkmusic!

HI REGUS3. I have a gold plated Beuscher TT straight soprano.Great horn! Intonation,warm sound,projection,focus. The "works" However,no front F. But how often do you need it? I don't. They are rather rare. Mine was made in 1926. Would never sell it. Have seen them for $1000. to &1400. Good luck. Rustyreed.

I have bought a soprano from the first manufacturer you suggested. I can say I'm very happy with my System'54 (type: superior class). It's a bare brass one and looks fantastic. I'm primarily a tenor player, but the sound of this soprano is spot on. I struggled years to get a decent recoding sound on my tenor, but the first time I recorded this soprano I was very much surprised by its sound qualities. At first I tried to play it with a neck strap and the curved neck, but after a few months I’m now very comfortable without a neck strap and with the straight neck. For that price I got a decent horn. Maybe it will need more service than a real pro horn, but small things I can easily fix myself…

Play test whatever is available in your area. If nothing does it and you have to order one online, get a Barone. No question in my mind.
