i am looking for an upgrade alto and have narrowed my choices down to these three, i can afford them all, i was just wondering about different views in comparison, currently i think the SBA is on top, fairly sure actually, but i just wanna know what you all think.

the SBA is great, the lacquer is more intact than on my 275!!! and its only 1800!!


the 6m is great, it is as good as a 26m i recently played, is a good relacquer,

the model 26 i havent played recently, original lacquer, fair quality, quite early

Before commiting to the SBA, put on your favorite mouthpiece, adjust it for proper tuning, then play a nice, soft low B.

the serial is M54964, making it, i believe, the 38th last SBA ever to have been made!
You can't go by serial number in that range. You have to look at the horn's particulars (pinkie keys, etc.) to see if it's not actually an early VI. Some horns between serial number ranges have traits from both the previous and subsequent models.
