Is a SML-bariton build by SML? I am interested in your opinions.
Please respond if you do have any information about this.

The answer to this question is: maybe. There are a few examples of SML baritones out there in lacquer and silver and they have many of the same characteristics of SML alto and tenors (particularly the lower LH key cluster), but there have been some comments that the baris were stenciled by Buffet.

As a player of some of the Buffet horns, I doubt this. Particularly because Buffet seemed to have an allergic reaction to producing silver horns after the early 1920's.
