hello, my name is sebastian.
i am from Argentina. I play a Yas-25 since i started learning.
I want to move to a tenor sax. What would you recommend? I love vintage sound, but the problem is that here in my country there aren´t lots of vintage saxes, and the few that are here are very expensive.

So, my conclusion were:
a) buy a YTS-(intermediate or pro horn)
b) buy vintage sax.

I prefer the number B.
In an Argentinian eBay (lol) there are some vintage saxes.
A Conn 10M 1949 (no rolled toned holes :cry: ) for 1850 u$as. And another 10M Conn 1965 1750 u$as.
There is another vintage sax, a New Wonder with rolled tone holes for 1900 u$as.

Maybe you are thinking that prices are over standard, but i repeat, it is difficult to see good/cheap vintage saxes here in argentina.

If you have a well known shop that sells vintage saxes in U.S. and that sends them to Argentina, please post the link.

Thank you very much.
Sory my bad English :(

Seobis: Welcome to SOTW. I am not a tenor specialist nor that familiar with vintage Conns, but those prices don't look too out of line with what I've seen in the U.S.

Go to www.vintagesax.com (Gayle Fredenburgh's site) and look at her vintage tenors (and the rest of it, too). Gayle may be a little high, but she has outstanding saxophones on her site and that may give you some idea of the value of what you are looking at. DAVE

thank you very much dave.
i have just seen Gayle´s page, outstanding saxes.

i was wondering if you have another webpage shop that is secure for buying vintage saxes, not ebay :p. It´s not i dont rely on ebay, but if you have some personal knowledge with a webshop i could feel more secure in my buyings.

My message might be confusing, sry again about my English.

Thanks
Sebastian "il Argentino"
