Where can I fly in this country and play several different saxophones? New/used, Yamaha, Selmer, p. Mauriat, yanagisawa, conn, Martin... The whole deal?

Where is the best place to go and play a lot of different horns?

Thanks,

I am sure there is probably places in New York or California, but I haven't been to any of them.

I have been to Saxquest in St. Louis, MO and I really liked that store. They also have a website www.saxquest.com

Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center in Wheaton, Md. (just outside of D.C.) usually has a good selection of modern pro level horns. Maybe a few vintage horns. I bought an 88K Mark VI bari from them a while back.

I played a bunch of horns at Rayburn's in Boston one time...I sat in a room and the guy there just kept handing me saxophones! It was really fun. That was right when I was starting out. I would like to do it again, now that I have a better grasp of things.

The Woodwind & Brasswind in Indiana has a great selection of new saxes, and few used and vintage. Much better going there in person than mail order! Tenor Madness in Iowa is also very good, and has a very large vintage Selmer collection to choose from.

Have you tried Southern Music in San Antonio? They use to have tons of horns.

They do not advertise their horns on their website. Looks like their more into sheet music than anything else.

The reason I looked into them is I work for a company in San Antonio and travel there several times a year.
