If you really have a desire to play, a low end instrument is not where you want to start.
Check your local music stores (more than one if possible) for a Selmer made rental, used to be Bundy/Bundy II. (older is better)
I have played and owned many and the Bundy was a great starter horn. Owned a Yamaha professional and was severely disappointed in the sound and feel. Selmer Paris Mark VI is by far my personal favorite, but that is not a starter horn.
Check this forum out for some good info. Sax on the web
