Achieving the altissimo range is flexible enough by the sheer mechanics involved that it should NOT matter whether it is a student or pro horn and anything in between.

Granted, the interior proportions of some designs make some saxophones easier to achieve the altissimo range than others, but this can generally be compensated for by the throat, alternate fingerings, and MP selection.

You are likely not being held back by your horn in this area.

Hit Sigmund Rascher's book Top Tones For The Saxophone if your are developmentally ready for it, and worry not about the horn.:bluewink:
