Here's a link to an ebay store for B St. Music in San Mateo.Can anyone suggest good stores to buy a beginner saxophone in/near San Francisco? I've been searching online, but I couldn't really find much information...
Any suggestions on which sax to buy would be really helpful too.
Contact Palo Tung at justsaxes.com. He's now based in Capitola, near Santa Cruz which is an hour and a half south of SF.I was wondering if anyone knew of a store that has bauhas walstein... i've been reading good stuff about them as starter saxes.
Haight Ashbury Music Center is in the Haight which is not near Union Square. I've heard lots of negative comments about them. I wouldn't go there. And they don't specialize in saxes. Look them up on yelp. You might try Bronstein Music in South San Francisco.And how good is the haight ashbury music center, near union square?
Actually, Union Music in SF is associated with A&G Music in Oakland and Best Instrument REPAIR. Best Music in Oakland is a different store. Very confusing, though.The last time I was in The Haight Ashbury Music Center it was not very good at much more than attracting tourists and interesting looking guitars. I don't think they do saxophones. Union Music Co. is associated with Best Music in Oakland and they have quite a few high end used wind instruments.
I am both disappointed and relieved - I am disappointed because I wanted to come by and try some of those cool horns you have. I am relieved because I probably would have ended up with GAS for some of those cool horns you have.I am in the middle of moving from SF to Portland, OR
