Post some pictures- I'm sure someone on here can help.
Yea - Im sorry. Pictures would be important. Here are 3. If you need more, just let me know.Post some pictures- I'm sure someone on here can help.
Neck too; Front and side views to reveal the mechanism and any other tells.The company that comes to my mind is Orsi because they made a lot of stencils. Pics that show things like the pinky table and other features in more detail would pin it down. I am betting though that if you search a bunch of Orsi tenor saxophone pics you might find it.
Neither have I. But that doesn't mean too much. Unfortunately, the photographs are low resolution / too small to show any relevant details. In addition to the details requested above, please post close ups of the octave key and body mechanism as well as the neck and the octave mechanism there. Pinky table for both left and right hand are often tell tales for the manufacturer.the bell to body brace I've not seen before.
I'm inclined to agree based upon the characteristics of the key guards - and yes - the images offered are too few.If it is really made in Italy, it will narrow down the options, but I am also leaning towards Orsi.
Your link isn't working for me, here is repost of it. Is my Orpheum Deluxe a Rampone & Cazzani stencil?. Also a pic of the sax in that post.As others said, detailed pictures of the keywork, especially the left and right hand pinky keys, the neck octave key, and also the location and style of the serial number stamping and even the style of the Made in Italy stamping will help.
The bell brace is rather unusual and actually I don't think it's going to be an Orsi (the bell brace, G# key shape, etc look different from many Orsis). It is reminiscent of the saxophone linked here, with an oval bell brace: Is my Orpheum Deluxe a Rampone & Cazzani stencil?
an Orpheum Deluxe that was said to be by Rampone & Cazzani, by people who know more than me. If it has that unusual part-plastic thumbhook, that would be a tell.
not your business.Why would you buy something that you have no idea about?
No, OP wasn't asking for opinions, just help identifying it. We don't know the situation of how it was acquired. I could imagine myself jumping on this for $300, maybe more, if I came across it, picked it up and determined it was playable or nearly so.Well, when it gets posted on a forum like this, it gets to be everyone's business and opinions are being asked for
No. Why he bought it is none of our business. That has nothing to do with what it is.Well, when it gets posted on a forum like this, it gets to be everyone's business and opinions are being asked for
