YAS23 is the granddaddy of all student saxes, and thats made in Japan...sycc said:look where it is made. Germany,japan,italy usually make pro saxes. There labor costs are high so sax makers based in these countries do not bother w/ student saxes.
Yes true,I forgot about the YASs. They are,however,very expensive student saxes. So much so that if I were buying a sax in the YAS price range I'd buy a 475 Yamaha instead.Canadiain said:YAS23 is the granddaddy of all student saxes, and thats made in Japan...
Not necessarily if you put one in the hands of a careless student....hakukani said:I think pro saxes last longer.
"Made better" should make sense to most, I would think - especially if you apply sound engineering principles (material selection, precision fitting, etc.).fred12 said:Guess I'm more of an engineer than a musician, but responses like "it's made better" or "it sounds better" don't really enlighten me. Perhaps the most objective answer would be "it costs more".
Sure...why not ...then that way NOBODY will need to visit SOTW except to search for info....and we can stop posting entirely!BobbyC said:I predict that very soon a thread will appear mentioning the search button.
