Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had heard of the brand Orpheus? It is not the Goodson version. I don't think he would have been alive when this was made.

This will be my first fix-up sax. I have a lot to learn.


Regards,
Craig

Yes, I've seen it on a 20's stencil, just a name - some more detailed pictures might help us identify the manufacturer.

By the way, that's a modern Orpheus Orpheo on the left...

I just bought it, so it is still in transit to me. I'll take some more photos when it arrives.
I did ask they guy that I bought it off if it had anything like "c" or "H". But all he could find was the serial number 6420.
I am hoping that it is a Alto.

Cheers.

Looks very much like an alto from the proportions - there were no (or none that I've seen) stencil C-Melody saxes with alto-style necks, so you're on reasonably safe ground. Only (very) minor chance is that it's a C-Mel body with an alto neck, but I don't think so. And stencils tended not to be High Pitch, it'd be a rare 'un if it was.

Fingers crossed ;)

Guys,

Just got the sax. I will put some more pics up a bit later when I get home.

Across the bell joint it say's "Made in Italy"?

Cheers,
