Espresso: Every saxophone varies - even those of similar model designations. Having said that, a year or so ago, I tested several student-level altos at Dave Kessler's shop in Las Vegas. I ended up buying one of his house-brand Kessler Custom altos for my grandson.

In that process, I played several of his Customs, several Antiguas, and a Unison 2000. The Unison was clearly the best of the bunch, but it was also twice the price. They all played good enough.

I've also played several Yamaha 62 altos. I know - many Yamaha fans like theirs, but I've not played a Yamaha alto of any designation that I liked, including the Z I once owned. And that includes the 62 series. If I wanted an inexpensive alto today, I'd take a serious look at the Unison 2000 (or a vintage Buescher!!!). DAVE
