TL;DR: I need some guidelines for choosing a decent instrument for an amateur, at home, that isn't a complete piece of crap.
I'm 44. 30 years ago, I was first chair alto saxophone in a marching bad. These days, I can barely read sheet music.
I'd like to pick it up again, but I don't have a sax. Any recommendations on what I should look for? I don't want to buy the equivalent of carbon fiber golf clubs for something that might wind up spending quite a bit of time getting dusty, but I'd rather avoid an instrument that actively emits toxic gases for years on end, or completely falls apart if I happen to glance in its general direction.
Apologies to the group if this isn't the right place for this question. Any insight is appreciated.
