I like baritone. I play tenor for economic reasons. I play alto for aesthetic reasons. Looking for one which fits. I like wide, separated keys. This is a curiousity regardless of tone because I have a bunch of good junk in the alto line that hasn't matched up to my satisfaction yet and I think the only thing I REALLY need is my muse. Where is she in all these saxamophones? A big hand (long finger) dude needs to know. I just really don't care by asking anything besides 1: respectable (they aren't known as dreck) and 2: roominess. Tone is not relevant in this quetion. Thanks.

I do realize that an alto will be more constricted than tenor, btw. I'm just looking for layout advice on where the pearls land, so to speak. I think that clears up what I'm after? IOW a good practice horn that doesn't sound too bad for everyday use. Right.
