I'm sure this is posted all the time but...
I am looking to buy my first selmer in the new year and I am getting differing views as to what to buy.
My price range is $1400 so I was thinking of buying an AltaMira M30.
However, others have told me to just buy a dg-250 and still others have told me to hold out and buy a custom off the classifieds. As one person put it, "It's expensive to be cheap..."
I am on the fence about this. I've been playing the style for awhile on an old archtop but it's definitely time to make the plunge. Any sage advice would be greatly appreciated.
