I played a bunch of Antigua sopranos at Kessler's store before he introduced his Kessler-brand saxophones. I bought a 590LQ from him - and still have it.

Since he introduced his Kessler-brand horns, I've purchased a tenor and an alto from him. In comparing the altos, I thought the KC was the better buy. They are very nice saxophones for the price. I would expect similar results from his Kessler soprano.

However, knowing the Antigua sopranos, I'd most likely buy one again although I would certainly test them both before buying.

Being that you are not conveniently located to Kessler's, you may want to call him (I know, an expensive international call - but probably worth it for a $1K- purchase) and discuss it with him. He WILL tell it like it is. DAVE
