Alrite, don't laugh, but I'm thinking of starting up the saxophone. Could anyone inform me on pricing ranges and any tutors about the area? Also if anyone can play it, is it quite a diificult instrument to learn? (I can play the guitar,piano and harmonica)
Aww YEAH! Just remembered the Indiana Jones trilogy is on this week!!
(Nothing to do with music, i know, but who cares? It INDIANA JONES for Christ's sake!!)
I once new a guy who had achieved grade 8 standard on the saxophone and he sounded awful.
(mybe he put in for his Grade 8 Avant Garde, I don't know)
Hard to play...?
I play, it's easy enough once you get the hang of it. Price will depend on what type of sax you want (alto/tenor etc) and I'm guessing a good beginners sax would cost about £300+ This is a very vague estimate...
EDIT: My tenor sax was £450. It is quite nice.

Tenor sax is really handy to pick up (it plays like a big recorder). Getting the intonation with the mouthpiece down should only take you a few weeks of solid practice, but its hard to say. Go for it!
