This statement is what is ridiculous, not the alternate F# or G keys or their users.... is it just me ... if you need a F# or G key on your sax to play those notes, you're probably not someone i want to hear play those notes anyway? A high G key key on a soprano? Really?
Fill us in on the two octave key thing, I'm not up on the specs on Adolph's original models. (Haven't seen any on e-bay lately anyway.)I play high G-C on soprano, and I don't even have a front F. You just play the horn. Oddly enough, the horn does have a high f#. My other horns don't. I always forget about the F# key, though.
Of course, real men play sax with two octave keys, the way A. Sax intended!:twisted:
