Re: sax tone
Actually, I went from a Series III alto to a YAS 23 about a year ago (preferred the sound and intonation of the YAS23). Since then, I've become a die-hard Keilwerth fan.
Turns out my ideal sound had a warmer core to it. You sort of have to play around on a number of horns to get a sense of what appeals to you sonically and ergonomically.
