I'd try cash-converters or cash-generators, both have websites listing plenty of alto saxophones in the sub £250 range, or maybe you have a store nearby?... I spotted a 1970s Buffet Dynaction alto in one near me ;-)
Thanks Andy. Will try them

I`d put that Alto up against a TJ SR anyday .. Davey-Sax who changes his high end tenors almost monthly (Pro Tenor sax player from Geordieland for those who don`t know him) has an Elkhart Deluxe as his only Alto and has had for over a year !! , He`s had Yamahas, Yanis and Selmers , kept the Elkhart as Alto isn`t his main horn and it`s more than good enough ......... Says a lot from a guy who`s had loads of Altos and could have easily kept a fancy one

Well if it's good enough for Pro tenor sax player David then it's certainly good enough for me. I'll keep it.

Agree! Northern Davey is a very accomplished sax pro. Plus I believe that quite a few people have had very good experiences with your sax. Good luck

The amount of money he has lost on his tenors over the years I'm surprised he can afford an alto at all.LOL

LOL - you said first Step 1500 alto , as if you had a number of the things and had totally lost the plot (the Step 1500 is one horn even Geoff Capes wouldn`t be able to break) ;) ....

If you think the 1500 is heavy you should have a try on the tenor!
