SA80 III vs Yani Tenor

Looking at a used Series III vs a New Yani this week. Which would you choose and why? I play an alto Yani and love it, and am looking for a tenor. Price point +-$3000

Play them both. Either they are sufficiently different that you’ll have a preference, or you cannot tell them apart and it won’t matter.

Between those two, it’s Selmer for me. I owned a III shortly after they came out, and played it for several years in big band and classical quartet settings (using Barone Hollywood and Jazz for big band, and Morgan 6C for classical). I much prefer the Selmer core.
