my first post here (though ive been reading/lurking for a while..some great advice in this place)..so im finally taking the plunge and buying my first pro tenor (upgrade from my Trevor James classic)...im looking at the usual suspects (Yam, Yan, etc) but also at the P.Mauriats...i know every Sax is a personnal thing/choice BUT i live hundreds of miles from any half decent Sax store...im wondering if theres any advice for which perticular model might suit my needs..i only play at home, love the sounds of Dexter Gordon, Sonny Rollins & Branford Marsalis..not really interested in rock/pop/rock n roll music as such..thank you in advance

Hi Dexter, and welcome to the cafe. Any of the saxes you mention will do the job for you. Bauhaus Walstein saxophones are highly regarded around here, and you can check them out on this forum, at the Bauhaus Walstein Owners Club. Good luck.

Jim.

If you can try as many top brand as you can but for me you cant whack Mauriats for there sound and price but thats me.My list is 1st mauriat,2nd yamaha Z's,3rd Keilwerth and 4th Borgani,as you see there's no selmer or yanagisawa in my shopping list but thats my list of choice's.
