I'm geting a new saxophone. So far I nerowed down to 4 choises.
Jupiter 687GN Standard Series Tenor Saxophone
Amati Series 33 Tenor Saxophone
Prelude by Conn-Selmer Tenor Saxophone
Vienna by Woodwind Tenor Saxophone


What will be the best choice? Any good recomendations on any of them?
Anyone has any experiance with any of them?

I'd say out of these, the most common and best sax in my opinion is the Jupiter. Or the Prelude. I wouldn't recommend the others. They aren't that well known.

I recently test played a Jupiter 687GN and was impressed with it, but the others I have never touched. I did play an Amati Bari that was really good, not sure about the tenors though. I would avoid ordering from WWBW for a while, until they get their stuff straightened out, which puts the Vienna out of reach.
Just my 2 cents on the issue, hopefully others can add more to it!

Have you actually played any of those? You'd be surprised by what you find.
Are you talking to me? I've tried three out of four of them. But I wasn't thinking. Go with Sod. Playing them would help you decide.

The one that won't break will be the Jupiter, most likely. But if you are doing something to be able to break a horn in a few months, maybe you should look a little more carefully at how you take care of the horns.

There is a review of a Conn-Selmer Alto on www.shwoodwind.co.uk you just have to click on the Reviews section, then Alto, then click on the review you want.

What is a "rizon"? Searched for it and found NOTHING at all.
