Although I probably shouldn't be spending time or money on this right now, I came across a bari sax at a pretty good price (I was thinking) so I started researching if the was true. I found the Solist Bar on Kessler's site. It is a Yani B901 copy. Anyone out there had the chance to play it that could comment on it.

Hopefully I am not repeating something else that is already on the site, but I didn't have any luck using the search function.

Solist or Soloist? (spelling)

I think " soloist" is a Selmer mouthpiece while Solist can be a famous Weltklang model or a less famous Kessler name for an Asian stencil with their name on it.

The Kessler Music house brand horn made for them is the SOLIST baritone. As stated on the Kessler site it is a computer copy of the Yani B-901. I recently purchased
one and it is everything they say it is. For half the price of a Yani it looks, feels, plays, and sounds like the Yani. If that is what one is looking for, as I was, just do it as is said.

and they say that they sell a product in breach of intellectual property...........that's very ..........unusual......... to say something like that that exposes you, potentially to a law suit.

Yup. Interesting comments, to say the least. I'm curious to know how their horn is different enough to avoid litigation.

yes, you could get away if you say is inspired to other saxophones, but to quote brand and model is looking for trouble
