    Default Alto Saxophone

    My son would like to invest in his own alto sax. His high school band teacher has really encouraged his love of music and helped to significantly increase his skill. I know very little about decent brands / models of saxophones. Any suggestions for some (new / used) decent sounding instruments that would fit a student's budget <$1500? Anything to look out for when buying one of these instruments?

    Thanks.
    Am I the only one without a small type signature?

    You might talk (email...) to my two favorite sax playas... Bob Chandler (Bob Chandler <chandlerb@franklinroadacademyDOTcom> ... music teacher and playa) and Greg Bashara (Greg Bashara <egregb@yahooDOTcom> ...fellow photographer and Baylor grad, and jazzman/all-around saxophonist). I know Bob C has talked a lot about Selmers (I talk DPAs and Neumanns... he talks sax)... not sure what Greg plays for dough. Tell them you got their name from me. I owe them each a beer (at least) anyway...
