I know there is not a lot of news out there on these saxophones but these Hohners are wonderful to say the least. I just finished rebuilding 2 of the tenors and they are quite remarkable players. I was really impressed with sound and ergs. Used a Morgan Excalibur 7EL mouthpiece on a standard 2 or 2.5 Rico Royal reeds. Has a much better fingering than my 63 Mark VI. Just curious to see what anyone else out there thought of these. Sure got my attention. I think these are real sleepers. Have a hard time of putting it down.
