Never played an instrument in my life apart from a recorder about 20 yes ago for a brief period whilst encouraging my nephew to learn. I've had a few puffs at a local dealership saxophones Inc a Chinese one at the right price, yet I do like the Yamahas esp the sound of the Tenor 280, yet the weight and size of the Alto. Any ideas that can help me decide would be good. Plus where I can get a used 275/280 as I see advertised for nearly new prices. Thanks in advance.
