Hi,

I have a La Sete Soprano sax which was given to me, so I really don't know anything about it.

It says that it was made in Germany and the serial number is 64609.


Does anyone know who manufactured this or when it was manufactured?

Thanks

I would like to sell this sax, and don't play it, and I can't find any information about it on the web.

I'm hoping someone on this forum will have additional information.

I didn't see any threat. The guy asked if anyone knew the origins of his soprano, that's all. DAVE
Well, that's what I thought. But I was too polite to say anything.;)

Carbs, did you mean to say THREAD instead of THREAT? I think that is where the confusion has arisen.

Do you have any photos of this instrument?

Looks like I'm responsible for stirring the pot a bit, eh? Write what you mean and mean what you write is always a good thing to keep in mind BEFORE one hits the SUBMIT REPLY button, Carbs. I know, you didn't mean it - but you sent it.

As far as this fellow's soprano, thanks for the photos. Looks like a MKVI clone, given the design of the bell pad-cups and the palm keys. Yet, the left pinky table does not come close to a MKVI design. I have a MKVI clone labeled KUSTOM - much closer to the VI design. Mine is Taiwanese - probably Antigua - from YEARS ago, as far as I can determine. The one being discussed in this thread is obviously of a design many years ago - maybe 25 +/- years old.

I'm curious as to how this latest soprano plays. DAVE

Any validity to the claim that these are Keilworth stencils?

Okay, I am making some progress. I definitely see a link of Keilwerth to La Sete based on this Ebay sale:

DESCRIPTION OF ITEM FOR SALE


NAME: Keilwerth La Sete Brass Trumpet withn case & Mouthpiece.
SERIAL NUMBER: 18741
MODEL: Decent playing trumpet that is made in Germany. Valves are fine and the slides are free. It has some playwear but the braces are solid and dents are minimal.Good old player.

I also saw La Sete listed on a basoon site as a basoon manufacturer, but is no longer in business.
