Well I know, bundy alto, don't bother, whatever. But I got it for free (there's a joke in there too I bet) so it's not a loss for me. Besides some pads that probably would need to be replaced soon, it looked fine to me. However I don't know how to get this thing to play over the break! I don't know if it's a mechanical issue, or it's just how alto is (being that I only own a soprano) Any help regarding this would be great, thank you.
