(Cross referenced in case it wasn't a King)

I noticed the following on eBay a few days ago: -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=120118613961

I sniped a bid, chancing a gamble that this might be something nice, then low and behold found that I had won it this evening.

The photo's are rather poor, but I wonder if anyone can identify it?

Once it arrives, then I will take some better photo's.

At 28" surely this is an alto.

Any advice would be welcome.

Many Thanks.

Indian POS. The red keytouches give it away. Might make a good lamp. Definitely not baritone.

Sorry...

Somebody really ought to go to India and find this factory and ask them what they are trying to accomplish with these things. If the desire to make a decent instrument is there, somebody should give them a clue on how to copy a decent instrument. All the work that goes into a SSO with nothing to show for it is pretty sad IMHO.

Thank you all, I have written to the seller advising him to read this link and have offered to pay his listing fees and withdraw from the sale.

This seller seems honourable and I hope that he will do the right thing.

Thanks everyone for saving me from buying a lemon.

Judging by the carefully chosen angles either the seller knows nothing about saxes, or does.

Despite three emails, it appears that the seller will not reply to them, yet knowing the information I have provided to him that the sax is a piece of Junk, he has re-listed it again, with identical description.

I tried to call him but his telephone number is not receiving calls.

Well there is not a lot more I can do now, I'm just grateful that everyone helped me out on here.


Now about that long lost very rare Selmer MVI..........lol:D :D :D :D

He probably has a load of these things. I see some for sale in the UK but many are listed in India. They usually sell for less than $10 US with the shipping being over $100 US. They also produce a cheap herald trumpet, albert system clarinet in C and some Eb flutes with 4 or 5 keys.
