I play tenor and don't get to pick up many altos, but this MkVI alto, (63xxx) came into my posession recently. It plays sort of OK, though it could do with a complete overhaul, but it just looks and feels out of kilter mechanically. It was difficult to photograph what I mean but look at the offset between the bell and the neck when the neck is in line with the thumb rest, and look at the position of the octave lift on the octave ring with the neck in line with the thumb rest. It seems as though a pair of giant hands has got hold of the top of it and the bottom of it and twisted them in opposite directions, yet there's no sign of any damage on the horn, in fact there's not so much as a ding on it anywhere. Is this mechanical alignment normal for MkVI altos and if not what's happened to it?
