On an earlier thread DaveDix responded to my question about a not-expensive "step up" alto, advised I look for a Buescher TrueTone w/front F, Crescent G#. Well I found one on Ebay, crossed my fingers and bought it. It came today - I am really thrilled with it! Got it from Jim Warshauer in Quincy, MA. THANKS DAVE. Websites like this are absolutely invaluable to "newbies' like me.
