Standard Length of C Curved Soprano and Bb Curved Soprano

2470 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bruce bailey
I have in my posession a 1920's/1930's U.S.A made curved soprano saxophone. It is Low Pitch this I know is a fact as it has Low Pitch stamped on it.
It is approximately 16 inches in length (i.e measuring from the bow to the top of the crook).
Can anyone tell me if this is a 'C' curved soprano or a 'Bb' curved soprano?
Also for the record can anyone tell me what the standard length of both 'C' and 'Bb' curved soprano is?
All help is greatly appreciated.

It's a Bb. The chances that you have a curved C are very small, as very few exist that are known of. (as in less than 10)
Is it a Conn or Pan-American stencil by the way? Someone here's developing a serial chart.
