Good job it was only a virtual bet then ...You'd lose.
Which is sort of the point I was making. Most of us don't have that natural facility and years of transferable skills to draw on.I was assembling models from drawings age8. I seem to have a perceptive spacial awareness
250 quid is a fair price IF seller states horn is in good, playable condition.Does anybody have advice on this model .Looking at purchasing it to start to learn on.
thankyou250 quid is a fair price IF seller states horn is in good, playable condition.
If seller will NOT make that guarantee, then pass on it.
If it is a local sale, and seller cannot guarantee, then try to find a sax player to accompany you to playtest the horn.
It would be fine as a first-sax for a beginner, actually. Yeah action not slick but there are also far worse examples. It isn't like it would 'hold you back' or anything.
And they do sound very nice, tonally....and they are built quite respectably.
