Altissimo

What are the chances I'll be able to build up a large altissimo range on my Yamaha 23 Alto? I know its a student model, but you never know... Is there a fingering chart that works well for a YAS 23? My range on Bari is pretty good, but its not a student model sax...

    I've been able to get an ├╝ber high D on my intermediate King alto... The figerings i use are at the Woodwind Fingering Guide: www.wfg.woodwind.org/sax/index.html

    I think the fingerings in Sigurd Rascher's Top Tones for the Saxophone may work out well for the YAS-23. I'm not terribly sure though.
