Sax.co.uk- saxophone paradise

I ran across this site/shop while looking for reviews of the soprano I just bought yesterday. They had reviews of nearly every new saxophone on the market. This UK based sax shop is 5,000 sq ft of NOTHING BUT SAXES! Duude. I could go in there and never come out alive. "Where's Valdez?","Oh, he's starving to death in the Selmer room". They also have a comprehensive world-wide mail order service. With the Euro so strong compared to the dollar it's probably better to stick to WWBW in the States, but check out the reviews if you're considering a new horn.

Duuude, what kind of soprano did you get?

First I was looking at an old H.Couf Superba II for around a grand. Tom P.
talked me out of that one and suggested a Yani 901. I bought one in mint condition for $1550. Great deal for a great horn.

And now that the US Dollar is at an all time low to the UK Pound--its the perfect time to shop at sax.co.uk :):)
God bless the US of A!!

I had one of those Yanigisawas. I used it whenever I played with my Israeli friends as they liked the sound quite a bit more than tenor and I was and am still a shitty clarinet player. Great intonation, great sound.

Having played the S901, S902, S992, and SC901 (remember, I'm an intermediate player aka late bloomer, I liked my S901 the best. Unfortunately it got trashed in a theater pit crew gig!
