I did a search and did not find any info.......well, to tell the truth I did a search and the result showed LOTS of threads but none seemed to deal with this question.

Simple enough, was there ever a curved C-sop ever made?
Just curious.

I seem to remember, one was mentioned on Wade Walkers original C Forum, can't remember the make, probably a prototype, never actually come across a production one.

That said, this saxpics link - [url]http://www.saxpics.com/?v=gal&album=784[/URL] - seems to say it's a Conn curvie C, but it could easily be a Bb curvie, nothing on it to identify it as a C :( as far as I can see ? Anyone else care to comment on C vs. Bb ?

==========================

Aaahhh, memory just kicked in, the link (below) shows that very same (Cousenon ?) curved C in pictures 2 & 3.

That saxpics Conn has an S in the serial number indicating that it is in Bb. Also it is listed as nickel plate and it is actually silver plated.
