First I'd like to verify that the notion is even correct in my (fairly inexperienced) head: Can I assume that given all other things being equal (player skill, appropriate embrochure, skill in positioning of larynx/throat/oral space, breath support, etc)....that there are makes of tenor horns that have better or worse intonation tendencies? That is, when one note is tuned to say 440, the other notes may or may not be easily brought into tune by the (previously mentioned) player skill. If my notion is correct, then I will ask the next question: are there tenor makes with better intonation tendencies ("more forgiving" of my skill limit) than others? I currently play alto in an SATB quartet, but want to branch out (and want to arrange some ATTB pieces), and intend to spend ~$3000 or less. Thanks.
