Does anyone play one of the above? or ever played one?
Are they a good beginners baritone? We only have about £1700 to play with so are limited, but would like to get the best we can for our pennies.
The Elkhart is a student level sax and not the step up you want. A friend of mine bought a s/h Buffet 400 tenor in preference to a new Elkhart. The Buffet cost more but was miles better. If you can find a Buffet 400 that would be a step up. Be patient, and good luck.
thanks for that. It's really useful to know.
I may well have a look at what's available 2nd hand around that price instead. The final decision is not mine as it's a band purchase, so they'll need to OK the funds first. The Yani on ebay ends next Tuesday, which is probably before I can get a yay or nay out of the committee! but I'll take my time and keep looking.
