I've recently acquired a Selmer Serie III Tenor and I've noticed something very different about the keys, between this sax and my Yamaha 82Z. If you press just the G key on the Selmer, it holds down the Bb bis key as well, but on the Yamaha the Bb bis key stays open. I use just the G key, with palm B and C, for some altissimo notes. So when I'm playing these altissimo notes, the bis is open on the Yamaha and closed on the Selmer. Why is this? You'd think it would make a big difference, but it doesn't seem to.
