Before I even knew who the OP was, I guessed that this thread must be a sequel to the thread about how the Mark VII was designed to support the weight of a 747 rolling over its bell.
I just lifted the material from earlier threads and cannot take any credit except for finding it again. And you are quite welcome.Anyway thank you Click for this nicely put together chart which also has another important function. It show which saxes most need the addition of nodal weights, klangbogen weights, fishing sinkers, boat anchors and other tone-enhancing mechanisms.

Our Removable 2 pound metal sleeve slips over your horn with ease providing just the right nodal response! Forget those measly 1 ounce weights! Its pounds you need! (Also available in the 2.25 pound Yani size!)"
