About the alto

I just watched this video on the alto by Michael Lowenstern aka Earspasm Music. I'm curious if all altos are designed that way...

Not all altos, this is just a good example of what happens when a company gives up...

I'm sure if Selmer put the same attention into their clarinets that they do to their saxophones it would be a much better instrument.

Yea IDK if that's a great value for the money...

If it was me I'd put that $12k into a Selmer Paris rosewood contra alto
