i just had an audition a few days ago, and during one of the most critical parts of the piece, my finger slips off the keys. this isnt the first time its happened, and iv had this horn for about a year. i never really understood why yamaha was praised for its keywork. i absolutely despise it. i assume it was meant for asians will small hands, but being asian myself, i still find it smaller than acceptable. also, i really dont like how the left hand's ring finger key sticks all the way out. all that being said, the 82z(alto anways) might not be my perfect match. However, i really like yamaha's plain and flexible, but focused sound. from the looks of things, the 875ex looks to have different keywork. how is it compared to the 82's? and is there some other horn with a similar( very similar) sound to yamaha's, but with keywork for, perhaps bigger hands? thanks.
