My belief is that this is an intermediate sax that a lot of people like. American made and with bevelled tone holes. Can any of you expand upon my findings and let me know your opinions please?
As a beginner to sax would you recommend a Martin Imperial? Are bevelled toneholes better or worse? Are you saying that the bevelled toneholes Imperials were old inventory and they wanted to sell them quickly so they advertised as beginner models?
Many thanks Jonf. At this stage in my "sax learning experience" I am not skilled in using vintage yani's or having tried (or recognised) many saxophones. So my "preferences" are unknown. Therefore the buying and selling of saxophones allows me the chance to discover what I like, am goo at and comfortable with! It also keeps the second hand sax prices low and fresh! Can get the Martin for £210ish and it is in very good condition. So I think I shall give it a go.
