Starting out on Alto!

Hello guys! I can't quite afford the new saxes right now as a university student studying jazz double bass.... so I'm trying to get one of these Saxes used.

The Selmer Bundy II for 400$

Conn 20m for 350$

Some 1970s Conn for 350$ UPDATE: This is apparently a Shooting Star, going to look into it more.*

Conn 18M for 150$

Also... I wouldn't hesitate to see if the music stores carry some used YAS-23s

Please and thanks :) Hope someone has some experience with these models!

So excited to start playing!

Welcome to SOTW. I can't comment specifically about those models you listed because I have not played any of them (as if one example is indicative of the whole model line - it isn't). I'd suggest that you find a seasoned alto saxophone player and ask him to evaluate the horns with you, preferably in person. Being a jazz bassist, I'm guessing you know someone who may be willing to help you. DAVE
