Thanks Phil! That's a deep and useful review, from a helpful perspective.

Hi Phil, I'm thinking of buying one of these. I started to play Alto many years ago but like you I now play Irish trad on a wooden keyed flute and play with folk muscians. My question is can I transpose the YDS 150 to play in "folk" keys ie. G, D and A.

Thanks

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to transpose, in theory. In practice, you'd probably need to have some skills that I don't have to transpose on the fly.
