Hi. Just wondering why you started a new thread when folks are discussing the same sorta question in your other thread.

Might be more clear to keep the conversation there as opposed to here.

Answer is yes if it needs no work. Also, it's at $88 now with 2 days to go...so you dunno how high it will climb, really. If it goes over $150-175, then it becomes risky because it may or may not need some work once you get it.

Repadding of an entire sax costs around $400-900 depending on where you live.

Just having a few hours of repair/tweaking/regulating done, to make most saxes play well, can be anywhere from $100-350, again depending on where you live.

I am selling an excellent Cannonball Alcazar student tenor sax both on ebay and on this forum. It is only 2 1/2 years old and in excellent condition. This is Cannonball's most modern student sax. It sounds great and has very good intonation. It only has a few small scratches. It was last professionally inspected and adjusted by Sam Ash technicians last July. This horn is ready to play without any repadding, adjustments or anything. It only needs a mouthpiece. You can easily get a very good one such as a Yamaha 4-C for around 20 dollars. If you want you can get a basic Cannonball mouthpiece, which are also very good, for around $40.00. If you have any questions, you can send me a PM on this site or respond through ebay. Whatever horn you get, good luck with it!

That said, from the photos, there's nothing immediately jumping out at me that says it needs to be fully repadded. It will last you a lifetime if you take care of it. Will it continue to meet your needs 20 years from now, well, that's sort of up to you and what you intend to do. As a brand, it's a solid student horn, but has has vintage ergonomics that may or may not appeal to you later.

If you're not buying it to make money on it, and are willing to accept that it might need some work to make it play well, then $100 to $150 is a fair price for it. If it goes up beyond that by much, then you might be better served to keep looking.
