Which To Buy? I'm a Total Newbie
Hi all, I'm looking to purchase my first saxophone and have no idea what to look for.
I'm on a pretty tight budget and trying to get everything I need for as little as possible. Hiring doesn't look to be an option. I so far have the below three finds. What do you think of them? Are there any better alternatives for around the same price?
I'm going to a music shop tomorrow to take a look at a used Freemont Excalibur (https://www.thewindsection.com/product/freemont-excalibur-alto-saxophone/) but it looks quite worn. From what I can tell it comes with nothing else, and have priced up the other items to bring a total to around £220-230.
At the same shop they have a JP041 Alto for £359 (https://www.thewindsection.com/product/jp041-alto-saxophone/) inc. case, a reed, neck strap.
I also came across this £300 bundle at Gear4Music.com (https://www.gear4music.com/Woodwind-Brass-Strings/Alto-Saxophone-Complete-Package-Gold/9L5) which has everything including 10 reeds, sax and music stands.
Would you go for one of these or something else entirely?
I really appreciate any help!
