Can anyone tell me anything about an alto that says simply "Buffet Crampon" and has no other writing. What model that would be?

Is there a serial number on it?

The SuperDynaction name is up the back of the body, i.e. not on the front where it just says 'Buffet Crampon' - if you are maybe looking at a pic only of the front of the bell, that might explain it; the horn would otherwise look not a million miles different than a Mk 6. If however you have seen the horn and there is no other script, then it will be seomething else.

Check the Buffet alto '18-20' for sale at justsaxes.com

Saxpic's server doesn't seem to be working or you could get more thorough descriptions and pics of all the pre-SDA models there.

Sherry, does it look pretty much like an SDA, at first perusal, except for a different bow brace, and presence of a forked Eb?

er...sorry...Sherry: meant neck brace, not bow brace. Don't know why latter came out of my typer.

Marty, the S2 was an "intermediate" model that was only sold in Europe. It's also a high pitch A=442hz horn and lacks the S1 kewl low C/Eb keys and G# cluster.

Sherry's question has been pondered and answered in the French Saxophones and Keilwerth threads. The horn she has is a Keilwerth-made instrument with the Buffet name. They're interesting horns!

To clarify: I don't have and have never had this horn. I saw one and was trying to identify it. Thanks
