Hi. I was a bari player in high school, but I always loved the alto and wanted one of my own (especially since bari's are so expensive in comparison). It's been a few years since I've played a sax and I'm dying to get back into it. I found a "Super Classic Amati Kraslice" (they call it a vintage silver Czechoslovakia Classic) for sale in my area for $140. The owner says it was purchased in Prague, Czech Republic and made in 1980. It is in need of some repair (pads etc.) but nothing too major from what I can tell, and that's what apparently is bringing the price down so low. I'm curious as to what anyone knows about these horns and if it would be worth anything to buy this and spend a bit extra fixing it up and getting some good equipment for it. Thoughts? Thanks.
