Hi - I play alto and tenor sax's and was looking to take up bari as well, however I am quite short (actually I prefer "Petite") and when I tried a bari (Trevor James) I found my right hand couldn't quite reach the bottom pinkie keys.

This is probably a dumb question so feel free to laugh and ridicule me - but I don't suppose anyone knows of any make/model of bari that has the keys arranged a little more compactly?

Ta Much

Thanks for the advice. I'll try to get a hold of a Yani to see if it fits.

I also heard that Steve Goodson bari's have a compact key layout, although the only UK dealer is at the other end of the country from me.

My problem is not the size of my hands, but the length of my body and arms. If I didn't have to extend my right arm and wrist so far I'd have no problem reaching all the keys (iykwim).
