Okay, after reading some of the threads here, I am now intrigued. As I understand it, Selmer Paris actually manufactured saxophones keyed in C! I am also of the impression that these models are somewhat rare and command a premium price when they show up on ebay and the like. Other than that, what can you tell me about these elusive saxes? How do they compare to the Conns, Bueschers, Martins, Kings, etc... Do they sound more like an alto or a tenor? Did they have intonation problems or were they up to the "Selmer quality" of the rest of the line? Are they worthy of the premium pricing that they are fetching or is it all hype? Was there anything unique or innovative about these C Saxes? As I said, I'm intrigued!
