I still prefer my £150 Jupiter 500Hi Tommy
My problem with that sax is that even for the starting bid (and that could double by the end of the auction), you could pretty well buy a brand new walstein, Yamaha etc.
Admittedly, the cool factor,( especially if a set of sunglasses and hat / bandanna & flowery shirt, are thrown in as part of the deal) is on another planet.
Also bare in mind it may need repadding and other work.
Your money, your choice!
The listing says that this has a lovely sound but the guy selling it says hasn't really played it as he plays alto sax. I suppose if you like silence then this sax really does have lovely sound. Wouldn't touch it with a barge-pole.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110491902575&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
Not a bad price i think ... any comment??
Particularly bad on the Conn C Mel. I've got one and had to move the ring nearly 6cm to get it to a balance point. Without it, thumb agony within 20 minutes, and I've got big hands. It does play well though. With an Aquilasax curved crook new pads with metal reflectors and a modern mouthpiece, it sounds great, a slightly higher pitched tenor sort of tone.The Conns all need the strap ring moved, .
