As a satisfied user of a SDA tenor and S1 alto, I have been looking out for a Buffet soprano. I have had pics of a couple of both SDA and S1; all appear to lack a front F key, whilst the S1 have the same keywork on the pinky tables as SDAs (at least as far as I can tell from the pics). Does anyone know if these horns were made with front F keys, of if any of the S1s shared the pinky keys for which the altos and tenor are so famous? I am tempted but could not do without a front F and fail to see the attraction fo an S1 over a SDA if the keys are the same.

I got in touch with another dealer who has an S1 and and SDA for sale, apparently neither model had a front F key, a bit of a wierd oversight IMHO for such a recent horn, so unfortunately, they are not for me.
