i really like the look of them, and for some reason i really hate the look of alto sax's with bells that are to near to them, because i think it makes it look a lil babyish? does anyone share this though or am i just crazy lol

It's pink, so surely it's a cadillac? If not I'd want my money back.

And as for the very serious and importan original topic of this thread, let's be honest here, we all know that the only "proper" sax is a tenor. Altos are like little toys for kids, tenors are striclty where it's at ;) ;) ;)

'61 pink cadillac, which belongs to the drummer in our Classic Rock band. We used it as a prop for promo pics. Here's the band (and the car), the drummer /car owner is in the front.

Tenor is for rock etc. For the fine work of jazz, the alto is a much more subtle tool.;)

Pepper Adams had a small frame and was one of the best baritone saxist that ever lived.

Stop it Johnnie, you're just way too cool, it's humilating! That's an excellent band pic!
