I was recently on the hunt for a budget friendly horn with modern keywork and and great vintage sound when this guy popped up on ebay. The price was right and it looked like it was in pretty good condition so I took a shot. It's an 822xxx, so it's about as early of a tenor as they get. I am just pleased with this sax. It plays great, feels good under my fingers, and has a HUGE sound. I can't believe these saxes aren't hyped up more. I've had it for a couple days now and I just love it.
