Have you tried Stuart MacDonald in Bradford? Excellent player and excellent shop/backup.Does anyone know the best price around in the UK for a new Ref 54 tenor? Nearly every shop that does discount has them at GBP 4800. The prices are crazy, to be honest, which is why I'm asking if anywhere has them lower.
another +1 for Stuart here - his website is not great but the shop is a treasure trove, so give yourself plenty of time, take your mouthpiece & go visit. I've bought loads from him over the years, without any problems at all.
