I am going to ask you: Which of these sunsets is better? (I am not saying the picture, I am talking of the sunset)

I don't think anybody can answer that question because they equally " good" as far as sunset go. The question that you can answer is: Which of these two pictures of a sunset do I like better?

Similarly those two horns are equally good as pro horns, just different. Which one do you like better? The only way to find out is playing them. No playing means guessing. You can guess alone or together with us.......but it would be a guess all the same.

For brand new prices they seem really good, I have to say.
I have tried once a SX90R nickel silver tenor and thought it played beautifully. However you'd better trying both.

I would buy the sx90R nickle silver. I have the alto and love it. The sx90 will be darker and slightly softer. the nickle silver will be brighter and slightly louder. The nickel models are also cool looking and hard to find. You are asking about the solid nickle sax, not the black nickle plate, right?

I would go with the nickel silver if it were me. But try them both out and then make your decision.

Nice conundrum to be in. Don't listen the JK haters. They are great horns.

lol I will get the nickel silver
Based on what?! Geez man. If I counted right, only two people said they actually played a nickel silver JK and you're going to base your decision on that!? Show a little independence and confidence. If you have the ability to try them both (which I infer from your post above, you do) why on earth are you making a decision in front of your computer?

I don't know what JK I'd choose but I'd take the 2nd sunset for sure.:mrgreen:




Ok, being serious I would try this time the Sx90. What a finish does it have?
I think the nickel silver are just in SX90R version available.

Is the Sx90 for 2100 a gold lacquer?
