Hey, my name's Brian Medeiros. I'm a saxophonist. I've been playing since I was about ten years old. I'm going to describe, in my humble opinion, the best saxophone brand. Obviously, this is a opinionated question. There's a lot of great saxophone brands out there. Some of the most popular ones, Selmar. I play a Yamaha. There's Yanagisawa, lots of different brands of saxophones, those probably being some of the most popular ones. There's also some different brands depending on the price range and skill level of the player. If you're getting a cheaper saxophone, brands like Caan, Armstrong, there's a couple a different ones that are just beginner saxophones that are priced a little bit less expensive. You can purchase a beginner saxophone around, about five hundred dollars new. And, a professional horn like this Yamaha Custom Z is around twenty five hundred bucks. And you've got....the benefit of this saxophone, it looks old but it's actually new. Didn't come with any lacquer on it so that it would look aged. It's only a few years old, and it's age is beyond it's years, which produces a more warm and more, just a more sought-after sound. Classical saxophones, like old Selmars and stuff like that, they have, they're valued really high because of the oxidization and the age of the the saxophone. So, the advantage I have using this saxophone, I have the sound of an old horn with all the action, and the new technology used in modern saxophone making. So in my opinion, I love Yamaha saxophones. But again, that's just my opinion.
