This thread will be a future reference for me when I have a part time job in order to buy a sax.
I feel that I need to have a legitimate pro sax as a necessity in the future.
What I'm looking for is a Selmer tenor sax. A Mark VI and later (nothing like a SBA and older).
The ergonomics has to be somewhat modern, at LEAST Mark VI like ergos (because I've played on only one).
Selmer tenor saxes that I'm interested in are:
- Super Action Series I
- Super Action Series II
- Super Action Series III
- Ref. 54
- Ref. 36
- maybe Mark VII's
Other options might be:
- King Super 20
- Yamaha 62
- Other horns of similar REPUTATION
What I'm not considering:
- Taiwanese horns
- Chinese horns
- Really expensive horns
- Vintage horns with outdated ergos (Bueschers, Conns, etc)
- Student horns
- Intermediate horns
I'm going to assume that my budget will be $6000 dollars at the most, but realistically, I'll probably have $3000 at the most.
Depending on what I can find at that time, I'll buy either a new or used horn, most likely used.
I'll most likely buy a Series I or II because they are reasonably priced and perfectly fit my criteria.
None of this is guaranteed, but I want this thread to be a reference for my future use, and possibly for other people as well.
You can't tell me to make a search, because prices constantly change over the years, but not too drastically within a year,
even then, it will still be like finding a piece of hay in a needle stack.
PS. Don't get off topic. This is strictly a thread looking for PRICES. Let me repeat, PRICES.
By the way, my question is asking for an average price of an used horn that I listed.
I forget that people don't deduce questions the way I do.
Edit: Got rid of Mark VI's. Prices vary too much.
