Hi everybody. I've been playing my YAS-23 alto sax for 5 years, and it's time for me to get a pro horn for college.
I've tried the Yamaha YAS-62, Selmer Series III, Yanagisawa 901 and 991 in my town (Huntsville, AL), but they were all available in different shops, so I couldn't really compare them side by side. Besides, I want to try the Yamaha Custom models, which none of the shops here have in stock.
So I'm planning a saxophone hunting trip to a town nearby, and I think Chattanooga would be the perfect place to go. What I need here is some information on music shops in Chattanooga that would have a decent stocking of alto saxophones. I'm looking for a new one, so preferably not pawn shops, but it really all depends. If I drive 3 hours to Chattanooga, I might as well try out as many saxophones as possible, no?
I live in knoxville and there are only to music shops here really. One has a Custom Z Yamaha, a 875ex, and a 62II. The oth has a ref 54, a modelle 22, and some student and itermediate horns. I am not sure if there is anything in Chattanooga.
