L.A. Sax made one (straight tenor, too). I owned a straight JK. Nice horn. Never heard of a straight Selmer alto. DAVE

I forgot about the LA Sax. I think they're going to bring those models back down the road. Never played one.

I ordered an LA Sax straight alto and it was so bad that I sent it back. The straight section that replaced the bottom bow was too long and everything below low Eb was UNBELIEVABLY flat. I'm not bashing LA Sax. I own an LA Sax straight tenor and I like it. Get the Keilwerth alto.

The above is correct: Buescher, JK, L.A. Sax.

Also add Rampone to that list. Rampone made far less than 100 of them over 70 years ago, and they were their professional line and only available as a special order.
I have one....;)

Go figure! Randall, your collection remains the envy of most players.
