"Save it for later" was not an option. The $1500 is a store credit.

I still favor selling the alto and buying a tenor and a keyboard. ;)

Well then. Just 1500 in general.

YOu can buy a nice vintage tenor for 750$ and spend 750$ whether on a drum set or a keyboard (you don't need to spend 1500$ on keyboard or a drum set neither of which is your main instrument)..
I bet that if you look enough on adds in your area you can get a vintage tenor for 500$ , used (or new) keyboards for 500$ and a used drum set for 500$...

The problem is it is a store credit, and must be spent in that store. Most stores can't order up used saxes, so new is probably his only option, which eliminates a Bari, and might eliminate a good keyboard as well. He could get something to learn on, but not a true pro keyboard.

The stores website is very poor, but it shows a partnership with a store that carries used drum kits. I'd use it up on quality used drums and GOOD used cymbals. Probably the best bang for the buck, and a reasonable resale to get money for a good sax in the future.

save is for something more worthwhile. Dont just spend it because you have it, that advice could apply to a lot of people here. :cool:

Maybe not a complete drum kit but instead some quality percussion and then what's left over for a decent pair of new shoes, made in the U.S.A. I'd a be doublin' and a dancin'. :D

I agree with Sigmund. Buy something that will hold it's value and then sell it and put it towards a vintage horn. Pick up a piano on Craigslist or something for a couple hundred bucks and just learn on that. Drums-meh. Not my style.
