Best Alto Sax for $2500?

I've been playing for 6 years and I'm looking for the best quality Sax for $2500. Suggestions?

If I were going out to buy a new horn, I'd probably wind up in a P Mauriat. They're well built, feel and play great, and blow away just about everyone else at price point (in my humble opinion, of course). Ultimately, I will recommend that you try one of those, as well as any Yamaha, Selmer, Keilwerth, Cannonball,or any other product within affordability and make the decision yourself.
Vintage horns can be cool. I once had a SML tenor myself, too, but wound up dumping it because it required an unorthodox approach to play in tune in the altissimo register. My everyday tenor is a King Cleveland (early 60's made in Eastlake) which has the same body tube and post construction as the vaunted Super 20; the mechanisms aren't exactly the most ergonomic, but I want that fat, funky sound (not to mention the keys are virtually impossible to bend out of regulation- a working man's horn). I also have a modern Selmer clone made by Antigua Winds; the sound may not be quite as house rocking, but the horn plays much faster and slicker by nature than the King.
In summary- vintage is made from generally denser alloys (heavier brass= tone and key stability) while modern tends to be better engineered (if not always well built). Unless you are a knowledgeable player or are receiving the counsel of such a player, I recommend new over vintage since the latter can be a bit dicey.
