Yes, but that assumes you intend to race. A Yugo can cruise down a highway
at the speed limit just as quickly as a Lambourghini, and much more
efficiently as well. Of course, it won't be as much fun! But that's why
we have inexpensive, student-line instruments. If everyone had to start
out buying instruments costing $2000 or more, there would not be very many
beginners. The automobile did not become popular until Henry Ford brought
out one regular people could afford. A fine pro-line instrument is
something all young clarinetists should aspire to own, but the Bundy will
serve them well in marching band (just like it did for me)!

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
