Hey there.

I might ge the chance to aquire what appears to be a orsi straight sopranino (at least that's what the owner claims he has)... When i try to find info on internet i only find the Curved Nino...

These is an old orsi catalogue where i can clearly see the sax i might get is the one on the left... When i read i can see it says soprano but it really seems to be smaller and tiner. but not a nino... It says it's Bb normal soprano and the next one says Bb professional soprano.

Catalogue - https://i1.wp.com/bassic-sax.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/soprano-models.jpg

So probably is just a "bad" soprano?

Just a bad pic for now:

#106 in your link seems to show a straight saxophone without full keying - two left-palm spatulas and only one bell-pad, while the other straight soprano seems to have the full keying, typical of most Bb sopranos. I wonder if those examples were miss-labeled?

I'm familiar with Orsi's curved 'ninos but I haven't seen a straight Bb Orsi soprano. That means nothing, though - just thought I'd comment. DAVE
