Low keys = speed
High keys = bigger sound

I'm gonna go with mostly correct.

I recently played an original mk6 tenor which I believe to be a factory set up that was very close. I mean very close. It played largely the same as my 105. My Comm3 tenor is very close set, again, I look back to the construction. I'd have to bend keys or file a foot to open it up. A Martin expert (Lance, I think) mentioned they are designed to be close b/c of the tone hole design. I dunno about that but the 3 is a lot closer than my Handcraft tenor and just as big.
