So, I feel a bit of a fraud really because I am not a sax player myself but mother to a 16 year old alto/bari/sop sax player whose life's ambition is to go to music college and become a musician....As well as teaching full time I spend a lot of time ferrying him and his instruments around the NW to gigs.... 8 in the last month....We had to get a serious bank loan after buying his Yani A9932J "he'll never need another horn" alto last year. The thing is, the bari he plays - a battered v old Yamaha - is borrowed and will soon need to be returned. Spotted a second hand Yani B901 on web for around £3000 but it's probably twice as much as I can afford at the moment....Are there any cheaper baritones that are credible, alternatives to the Yanis and Yamahas? He's tried out Elkhart, Hanson and the sax.co.uk. Liked the Hanson but even that is £2200. Do we let him try the Yani, knowing it may break the bank or go for a cheaper alternative, knowing it may not last the course....? Would love feedback!
