    Re: need to know about buying a sax from this place:

    Just from the site, my overall impression is positive.  It is run by a serious musician who has relationships with the producers, in Taiwan and mainland China, of the horns he sells.  It's not like he's selling pig-in-a-poke horns from trading companies.  The prices for the Taiwan-produced horns are extremely low.  Since try-before-you-buy is a good rule, you might be able to rent for a short while before you make your decision.  

    I'm still skeptical of tenors under $1k from China with stainless steel springs.  

    Phil Barone is another dealer who sells Taiwanese saxophones for under $2k.

    Do you mean Saxophone.org?? This site is owned by Mark Overton. He owns the music Store Saxquest in Saint Louis. Although I live in Florida I have done business with them several times and have always been satisfied with their products and service as well. I can't think of a better place to buy a new horn~

      Saxophone.com is a different retailer from Saxquest.  The two seem to cater to slightly different markets.
