Re: Professional Straight Alto Saxophones
Yeah, the only brand I've ever seen with a straight alto is LA Sax. I've tried it, and really wasn't a huge fan, I like the ergonomics better on the curved alto. The sound may have been a touch broader like Blaise said, but not really noticable. I would think there would be a more noticable difference on the tenor, because there is more surface area to be affected.
Also, I'm not a fan of LA Sax, so I wasn't really impressed at all. At best, I would call it a good collector's sax.
