Re: Diamond saxophone
I wouldn't say junk.
As a beginner, its an inexpensive way to start.
There are a number of makers of inexpensive saxophones, mainly in asia.
Since you are a beginner, get the most out of it for a few years. You may be highly satisfied with it. You may decide to move on to a more expensive model.
Anyway, Sonny Rollins played on a Bundy Tenor for a few years.
An inexpensive horn, in the hands of a true artist, producing legendary jazz.
Ignorance in the hands of the inexperienced=Studity
Good Luck !!
