I am in the middle of my freshman year in high school and I have just been moved from tenor to alto in the marching band for balance issues (0 veteran altos, 7 veteran tenors). I am actually a better alto player by miles, I'd say 2nd in the school, but I am running in to a problem that I didn't have with my tenor. My tenor is a student model, it takes all the abuse that marching band gives. My alto is a professional, god forbid I march with it. I need to get another alto to march, one that's tough but won't disappoint in the sound department. I know it's a tall order but really anything reasonably priced that wont be shockingly worse than what I'm currently on would be great. Thank you in advance forum!
