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.
