I myself don't play the sax, nor do I know anyone who does, so I don't really have any knowledge. I'm looking for a recomendation however for my daughter. She has always wanted one since whe was about 10 and loves jazz. She is turning 21 in April and I thought it would be a good gift along with some lessons as she is becoming an offical adult. I don't know what to really look for (like I said I know almost nothing about saxs) I would like something that she can use to learn on, as well as keep for a while once she hits the stage, also something that has a decent sound. Looks aren't too important for her, something used would be fine, or new just as long as it stays under 1,500.

I don't know if I posted this in the right area, please correct me if I should have put it somewhere else. I'm not too computer literate.

Thank You,

I also recommend giving Dave Kessler a call. He has always been a straight shooter with me, even when I did not end up buying from him. My son has had one of the Kessler model Alto's for two years and it has held up great. I played a Unison for 4 years almost identical in build to the Unison Alto's he is carrying (Though I didn't buy it from him) and it is an excellent intermediate horn at a great price. My son just inherited that from me as I upgraded to a Yani solid silver.

Good luck with the purchase!
