thank for your response. i appreciate the very helpful advise.
but then i guess that means the answer to my first question is .no.
the finger spread on an alto is much easier than on a tenor. i have one tenor, 2 altos, one soprano, and an sopranino. i like the sound of an alto. maybe learning the alto would allow me play soprano music on the alto, using everything above the c above f and beyond, pretty much transposing as i play. shouldn’t be all that hard.
still low alto c as opposed to tenor would be nice.
i’ll bet there’s a market out there for such an item.
