I love the Holton Collegiate Tenor that I just found. They may not be renowned, but ask someone who owns one what they think. Mine is a silverplate from 1940. It will make a great blues honker. It loves to growl and blows great overtones. When you play soft it has a rich tone. It's layed out well and is smartly constructed. My only problem is a mildew smell from sitting in the case for so many years. Holton was big in the 20s from what I understand, and made saxes into the 70s.
