Response to The easiest?

...they use an "Octave Key", which gives you the upper register using the same fingering as the lower register.

The Clarinet, on the other hand, uses a "Register Key" which kicks the tones up a Twelfth, requiring 2 trains of thought when crossing the break.

Maybe I'll rent a Sax an give it a try...if I get good enough to pass the instructor's audition for entering a beginning band class at our local college, then it's a go! How about Alto?

Thanks,
Harold
