I think the Holton compares very favorably with your Buescher in this a/b demo. Sounds good.

The Holton has more of a Desmond thing going on. Nice sound. Nothing wrong with it for $200. In fact if the the student is a newer player his/her parents may appreciate the softer voice. :)

Now the Buescher, definately more of a lead/bop sound. For the more experienced player like yourself thats the keeper. Well, unless you want an inexpensive back up for those softer moments.

Using a Meyer 5 piece and a shure BG 4.1 mik and goldwave as a recorder. I like the Buescher tone but that pearl left hand thumbrest really bothers me. I think I'll get rid of the Buescher alto and try to get something with a decent tone and intonation on the cheap. (I"m not teaching alot so I wont' put alot of money into the alto) Thanks for the feedback. K
