  1. Yanagisawa
    Dear friends, If you would be so kind as to share your observations with me, I have a very unique question here, but only for those of you professionals who have owned and played BOTH straight and curved RECENT-MODEL Yanagisawa sopranos of the same generation, make, and model, particularly the...
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi folks, I’m new here and looking for some advice to appraise a sax that’s been collecting dust in my closet for awhile. The sax is a vintage “Bel Air” curved soprano (from what I understand, this is a model of Dolnet). Serial number reads E9XXX. It was donated to me in some rather odd...

    Hello guys! Does anyone have experience with the P mauriat system76 2nd edition curved soprano? If yes, how's the intonation? Sound? And ergo? Thank you in advance!
  4. Cases
    I have a 1920's Buescher Tru Tone Curved Soprano with a fixed neck that I am in need of a case for. It is currently in a soft alto gig bag that I have padded out (not ideal, but it doesn't go far currently) however later this year I have some tours where I will need to bring it on the road with...
  5. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Hello, I have in my posession a 1920's/1930's U.S.A made curved soprano saxophone. It is Low Pitch this I know is a fact as it has Low Pitch stamped on it. It is approximately 16 inches in length (i.e measuring from the bow to the top of the crook). Can anyone tell me if this is a 'C' curved...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Just curious as there is an Orsi for sale on eBay, and the seller is fairly local. I can't afford to drop that much on something that will VERY rarely be played (Amanda already has a straight 'nino that gathers dust), but it made me wonder if there is a price range for these rare horns.

  9. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hi all, Got an old curved Buescher true tone (sn: 47935) not long ago and I love this horn, but tuning woes aplenty (not a surprise) when played with my SopranoPlanet refaced Supersession. I love the work Joe does/did on this piece but he did that back when I was on a straight selmer ss600...
  10. Buescher
    Greetings, everyone. i stumbled upon what i thought was a good deal. But when it arrived, i realized it was a lemon. Aforementioned lemon is a Buescher True Tone Curved Soprano (High Pitch) - original brass finish, plays up to D# only. Oddly enough, this one has keyhole guards. Is there any way...
  11. Bb Soprano
    Which one do you recommend for an Alto and Tenor player. A phil Barone Curved soprano or a Yanagisawa SC991? i know the price is slightly different but price is not everything :) For the finish on the Phil Barone i am kinda thinking Antique Bronze. So an Antique Bronze Curved Phil Barone...
