Howdy all! I'm a brand new face to this forum and I really hope that you guys can help me out. I played sax back in high school for a few years and absolutely loved it but gave it up as it was quite time consuming. After seeing a local jazz band, play and hear a friend belt out a few on her new sax, I really want to get back into it! I've read a bunch of reviews about beginner horns and the general consensus seems to be to go for bigger brands (which stands to reason). My big question is which would be among the best? I have some issues around logistics as I'm located in Australia so getting some horns is much trickier than others. I have managed to come across a few that I think would work? The first (and most expensive) is the Yamaha YTS-280. I can get it for just under $2,000 AUD. I've heard pretty much all good things regarding this horn less the price. The second is a H.N King early 30's model serial 100xxx. This one I've found (second hand, obviously) for $1,700. I can't seem to find much info on the 'king' range but the Vol-True are supposedly quite good. The third is a bauhaus walstein TS-P or TS-PD for about $1,500 and $1,700 respectively. I understand that the bauhaus walstein is a Chinese made horn but from all reviews I've heard they're of really good quality considering the price. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!
