Thank you all for your input. Going for the Kessler. It sounds like a quality sop well within my price range, and I can always upgrade. Best of the new year to you all! 🎷
I've had my duel necked Kessler for about 7 years now. It's been a very maintenance free horn holding up well to the rigors of the road. They're a great horn for the money, and a great player by every measurable standard. That said, I would totally jump on a 475 (or any) Yamaha soprano that's being sold for $1,000 or less in good condition. One thing to note is that a soprano with a solid neck has one less area to leak, and is generally a tad more responsive, with the trade-off of being slightly less ergonomics than any bent neck design. Going back to Kessler, I've found their keyboard layout to be the most ergonomic of any soprano that I've ever played.
