Get a YTS-62 or YAS-62 then you'll never have to buy another sax.

Selmer Report Abuse

Comments:
Play a Selmer or nothing else? A bit myopic. There are lots of good horns, and nothing is "best" for everyone.

If you earn your living playing sax, get one of these, otherwise don't waste your money.

Older horns made in the USA are best. Can do better with other brands if buying new.

King Report Abuse
Still in (limited?) production, but vintage horns are better. Their pro horns (Super 20 variants) were the chosen horns of many great players for decades and rivaled Selmer's top horns.

"Revere" is a Kohlert stencil horn made for Beaugnier (Paris)--1957 or earlier. Good horn if maintained well, but there are better Beaugnier horns.
