Hi MTaylor25,

Welcome to the world of saxophone playing!!

I would recommend a well-maintained used YTS-23 if you're starting out. Find a reputable dealer who can service the horn and make sure it's in excellent shape. Most importantly, get a qualified teacher to help you on starting out.

I don't have experience with the Trevor James horn you mention, but they are generally a well-regarded company that makes a quality product. I got to play one of their SR altos and it was an excellent horn. Most people seem to compliment their pro instruments as well.

All that said, a solid YTS-23 will be your best bet IMO. Best of luck and welcome to SOTW!

Welcome to the 35th greatest place on Earth.

I don't play the alto, but my stable does have two TJ tenors and they are darn fantastic.

My nephew is a senior in high school and plays a YAS 280. It's also a good/solid horn.
