Which alto for R&B ?

Need a new alto, can buy a used A990 for a good price, or grab one of those Kessler deals - A901 for 2 grand, A991 for $500 more. Then there is the bronze A992. Which model is more expressive for contemporary music?

They all are! They also all play classical very well too :) . The mouthpiece makes the biggest difference. A friend of mine has a 991 made in 1993 (he bought new then), that depending on which mouthpiece he puts on, can be so bright it'll "peel paint", or so dark, you'd swear it was a Buescher True tone!
This is a stupid question......
Yes, but we posted didn't we? Gotta get the post counts up! :D
