The System 76 alto has an increased bore and bell size, producing a warm full-bodied sound that plays in tune throughout the octaves. The keywork has been tweaked on this latest edition for improved playing comfort. It feels robust, yet has a smooth fluid action.
The Vintage Dark Lacquer (DK), although having a similar tone quality and core sound, seems to have warmer subtleties compared to the brilliance of the gold lacquer. It has extra fine engraving on the bell & bow and beautiful abalone shell key touches.
