I was recently approached by my band director (yes i'm that young) about upgrading my saxophone due to the fact that it is a yas-23. Although i bought a meyer 5m specifically to upgrade the sound a bit to make it more jazz oriented, it does not seem to be enough for him. (He is quite spoiled, he plays on a custom 24k gold plated yangisawa, more expensive than his car) I do not have very much money to spend, if at all, and it is going to take me a while to be able to buy one, so I decided to start researching brands that made better quality saxes than my own but for a more reasonable price. I stumbled upon the brand LA sax and not only does it seem legitimate, it also has beautiful finishes and quite modest pricing. Does anybody know anything about them or can anybody extend any opinions or advice?
