I am hoping to persuade the music program at the community college where I teach in Tennessee to purchase a low A baritone saxophone to be used in the jazz band I lead. Funds are limited, naturally. My “working budget“ is $1500-$3000. I would consider purchasing a used baritone, if a quality instrument could be found at a reasonable price. The brand names I am considering for a new baritone are Accent, Allora, Antigua, Kessler Solist and Magenta Winds. The latter is a “store brand“ only available from Matthews music in the Netherlands, as far as I know. Any suggestions about other manufacturers I should include in my search are welcome. I have read older posts about problems with the Accent baritones. I would be interested to hear any comments from those who may have played a recently made Accent bari, as well as any of the other brands I am considering. Thanks in advance for your responses!
