My alto is a really pathetic Mexi-Conn with intonation all over the place. It seals up just fine and is as mechanically sound as that particular vintage of horn could be, but it's still a bit of a roller-coaster sometimes.

I play it because it's what I have, and can't really afford to upgrade right now. Sometimes even a crappy alto is better than no alto....sometimes.

I played on a Selmer USA omega (823xxx) tenor for almost 20 years that was sharp in the low register and flat in the high register. It's sister my USA PRO(825xxx) alto was always great. Anyway the horn would drive me bananas(lucky for me most of my playing was alto/baritone). When it got overhauled(also got the optional sterling silver plus neck) in 06 the problem got solved. I have no idea what my tech did. I bought a keilwerth tenor(in hopes the keilwerth would get me to play more tenor{I still remembered the couf that got away as a teen}) in may 07 and use the omega as a back up and a sax for the youngest to use when she is big enough for tenor.
