I am a "late bloomer" - 57, without any previous experience. I have started couple of months ago. The tenor I'm using -- Amati Craslice unknown model -- is rented from the musical school (where I'm taking lessons once a week) -- it is absolutely usable accordingly to my teacher but it has definitely seen better times. I want to have an instrument of my own and my teacher agrees that this is a reasonable step.
I wonder, should I as a beginner be satisfied with an entry level instrument (I'm deciding between Yamaha-275 and Keilwerth ST-90), or should I aspire for something better -- I don't think I am going to change this instrument in the future, I will stay with this one indefinitely. In what way I will be limited by the student horn (assuming that I will like its sound)? I will appreciate your advise.
