Daisydoo is an awesome player who has his own beautiful sound. Find the horn that will allow you to find your own personal sound. Don't get stuck on brands or models. Maybe a Selmer Series II with a III neck will work for you. BIs there such as tenor as a cheaper version of a reference 36?
I would love to get this tone but I can't afford more than $2K:
The better your ear gets and the better you get the horn will start to make a bigger difference in terms of sound. I have gotten to the point in my playing were I notice the subtle differences from horn to horn much more. The differences in sound start to become glaringly obvious.Thanks for the feedback but if it doesn't matter what sax I get, then why would people ever pay any more than a few hundred dollars for a tenor?
Very often they don't. Some people think the more you pay the better the horn will be, that isn't necessarily true, especially these days.then why would people ever pay any more than a few hundred dollars for a tenor?
That's very hard to say, it's so personal. The horn that gets one person there won't necessarily be the same one horn that gets another person to the same place.I know I would need to really practice hard to get a certain tone I want. I'm just trying to get advice on which saxes will eventually get me there.
