Makes perfect sense, actually. It's your horn. And anyway, Yamaha YAS-21s are superb saxes, very well built and great to play. There's not all that much difference between your sax and the supposedly 'professional' YAS62.Find a sax that you really love, not a certain model, but one that you feel very comfortable playing on. I've been useing a Yamaha YAS-21 for about 7 years. I'd love to have a proffessional grade horn, but I can't bring myself to not play the one that I'm using, if that makes sense...
Interesting, and looks like good value for US buyers (assuming he gets some stock). Unfortunately not a viable option for UK buyers as shipping costs would be pretty high, and VAT at 20% would be added to the total of the purchase and shipping. Then there would probaly be import duty to be added, and the final insult, the 'handling fee' which the shipper charges for passing on the tax to the tax authorities.you can pay big money for a horn or get a Bauhaus Walstein or a sax from Paulo Tung at http://justsaxes.com. They both come from the same factory and I know that Pete plays some of the Bauhaus Walstein's because he says so.
I got some from Paulo and have never had or seen better value for money spent.
That way you can have a new horn instead of a used one.
