Alto Saxophone Lesson 1a

How to Buy - Quick Notes

How do you get a Saxophone?

So you want to play the Alto Saxophone and you don't have one to learn on? The first thing you have to do is get an Alto Sax. This can be very complicated for the first time buyer because there is so much contradicting information on the web and every music store seems to tell you something different.

The most common ways to get an instrument are renting, buying and borrowing. Sometimes rentals have an option to buy once you have paid enough of the rental to cover the full retail of the instrument being rented.


You can read the full article below, but for those looking for the quick answer. Buyer Beware! The best purchase is a safe purchase. When possible, buy a new sax from a major company with a track record and resale value. Student models by Selmer, Yamaha, Yanagisawa and Keilwerth will be your best bet for quality, playability, success and resale if you ever need to upgrade or simply sell your sax. You can't really go wrong with a big 4 manufacturer.
