Hello, I'm James. I recently came into a little bit of money and I've needed a new saxophone for a while. I have a Jupiter 500 alto sax but, it's on the verge of dying and now is as good as ever for me to get a new sax.
I've had my sights on the Cannonball Big Bell Stone Series saxophones but, I'd like to know if there are some cheaper and better alternatives out there.
Also, I was wondering about the finish... I like the nickel and silver-plated version but the vintage-looking finish of the 'brute' is pretty good looking. Which finish do you think stands out and looks better? I play in a band in my school and I'd just like an impressive sax that isn't the usual gold/brass.
I like playing pop/rock/jazz but, I need a saxophone capable of playing almost anything. I'm a fan of the fancy colours (they look good, okay?) and I have £2600 to work with. Thanks for reading and any help that you may be able to give.
