I had one of these for a while, finally refurbed and sold it. People say terrible things about them, that their intonation stinks, that they are built shoddily, etc.
I professionally refurbish horns.....once mine was properly set up...intonation was not bad. It was not shoddily built, either. It was a completely playable sax, andf not bad sounding either.
The key action, however, was not very fluid. A bit clunky.
They have almost no market value. I could not get more than $300 for the Tenor, and again it was professionally serviced.
Sort of the kind of horn where it may be worth just paying a tech $150-200 to get it serviced and playing half OK - and then keep her and play her, or donate to a young player who needs a horn.
Thank you very much!
Mine is completely playable .
Key action is not clunky , but the worst one i played , not for young player
But what big fat sound . I play it with an Aizen TLSL , more expensive than the sax
