- Near Lutterworth, Leics.
Not my usual bargain buy, but someone nearby has decided to sell. I've not seen it yet but can pop over in the next few days. Steve Howard appears to love his, as he said here: http://cafesaxophone.com/showthread.php?11016-Conn-Naked-Lady&p=126240&viewfull=1#post126240 ...and he's tried a fair few horns to say the least!
I'm aware it may not suit "my" sound, but I think it's a good price so perhaps I'll go and have a tootle. Having disliked the YAS-275 I briefly owned for its inflexibility of sound I'm curious what makes the 62 so revered.
What IS a "good" price for mint, VGC, average, and poor 62s at the moment? This one is between mint and VGC from the description.
I'd not considered swapping my Buffet 400 for anything, but I guess there are better saxes out there and it doesn't hurt to try does it? YES, of course it does 'cos you get all gooey eyed at the shiny devil of an instrument whose soulful lament draws you on to the rocks of financial ruin..... etc.....
Tom, have you tried one? How does it compare to the Buffet???
