So you’ve always wanted to play the saxophone, but you can’t afford an instrument? Imagine finding a new instrument, with all the bells and whistles, for under $300. Yup, the deals are out there. You just have to find them. If your ready to get those lessons started, look inside to see just how affordable your first saxophone can be.
Perhaps the most important consideration for any saxophonist is tone. Tone is the sound produced on your instrument, which can vary widely on every saxophone. What instrument other than electric guitar can have players like Paul Desmond, Cannonball Adderley, and Maceo Parker all play the same type of saxophone yet sound so wildly different. A quality tone separates the beginning or amateur musician from a professional, mature player.
