The Suzuki A-27 is the alto counterpart of the S-27, for which Pino posted a three star review. His main complaint was about the high notes, which he said were hard to play and made his dogs nervous. I find high soprano notes harder to play on my Suzuki S-32C, and my Cavaliers won’t tolerate their being played, so I think the A-27 may be a more desirable instrument than the S-27. One seller (don’t have a link) claimed that these instruments (the 27s) were manufactured during the 1950s. The older the vintage, the more likely it would seem to be that they were made in Japan.
