I paid $2399 for my series II s-80 soprano at Sam Ash in jan 2004. It was old stock but new(made in '97). wwbw.co was selling them for $2495 in jan of '04. Now the the same sax sells for $3699 on wwbw.com on closeout. But the Yani sc-991 I bought in march 05 sold for $2195;sells for $2495 in '07. Why the huge price hike for series II selmer sopranos???
