Hi to everyone!
Recently, I started putting some vintage horns besides to my Selmer's one, in order to have a greater sound versatility.
So I got an exceptional Bari 187xxx, a 166xxx Alto and a more recent 333xxx 10M Tenor (this one deserve a dedicated thread).
Well, I came across a 184xxx soprano, and since I loved the Conn sound of the other horns, I decided to test it, being afraid of intonation and mechanical issues.
What a surprise!
I liked the sound and intonation is fairly consistent (excerpt the interval Bb-Db. But the Bb can easily lipped down and the Db can be lifted up with the lateral C-thrill key)
My repairman said I was very lucky, since it's an great horn :shock:

I have small hands so they fitted well the horn.

Small intonation issues are easily compensated with a bit of training playing the instrument.
After the Sopranino, nothing scares me anymore :D

There's a test recording made "on the fly" with a Zoom, on the second trial day. Only a bit of delay/reverb was added.

It isn't a professional recording, only a test ;)

Oh damn, I forgot the pics...
Mine looks identical... silver. The palm keys must have been reworked in my sax...
