What do you folks think about all those NEW inexpensive Ebay saxophones? Mendini: $349.95; Opus: $551.24; Lade: $203.36; Hawk: $429.95; Prestini: 689.06. Are they ALL crap? HOW are they "crap"? Are we being taken when we pay $4700, or more, for a Yamaha? Selmer? Yani? Mauriat? Cannonball? What, precisely, makes them SO MUCH more expensive? Jay Metcalf bought a $260 tenor from Amazon, I think, and it played very nicely RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX, with no regulation and the mouthpiece that came with it (on his Better Sax YouTube comparison video). And, he said so! His Yani certainly didn't sound 20X better! Or, more in-tune. It makes me wonder whether the same sax could be sold for $300, $1800, or maybe I'd feel better about it if I paid $2700 ... and how would anyone be the wiser? How can a tenor sax be built and sold for $203.36? I can't afford it (although at those prices, I almost COULD), but I would love to buy several of those crazy-cheap horns and see just what the deal is. Is the metal soft? Are the solders ****? Are the tone holes in the wrong place? Does the lacquer dissolve after 3 weeks? Is the money spent on the "value" of the big names just a serious (not funny) hoax? I'm in the market for another (back-up) tenor, and I've been considering a pre-owned Grassi, a Cannonball, a Yamaha 62, or even a YTS 23, but I don't know that I don't have reason to consider one of these (dubious) horns. It's tempting, I tell ya'. Does anyone have any personal experience with these "nameless" Ebay horns?
