Saxophones Buescher left hand key table question

I tried out several vintage Buescher tenors recently but left with a 1950s Conn.

All of the Bueschers sounded absolutely incredible! I wanted to buy one so badly, but I could not live with the left hand key table. It felt like it was in entirely the wrong place.

Is it just me?

Nope, it's not just you. I have sop, alto tenor and bari buescher, and the left key table feels rubbish on them all, particularly after playing a Yanagisawa. However, you do get used to it within a few minutes. You do need strong fingers, though,particularly for C# on the bari.
