I've seen other Bass Saxophones out there by International for about $10,000 USD, but I said what the heck and bought this one. This sax is amazing and I've had no issues whatsoever, however I must warn that this is not simply a showoff instrument and must be maintained well for a good sound. If you have enough money to buy this I'd say buy this amazing instrument as its a dream to play, but if you're looking for value look towards the International Woodwind Bass Sax as I've seen it play and looks like a good value.
