Watching a wind ensemble on BYUTV and one player was using as straight body black lacquer sop with an upturned angled bell. Not googling with any success. Did find a Selmer for $5k but it did not have the angled bell.

anyone know how I should search for this? Using "curved" just gets me the usual "mini alto" shape.

What is the sound benefit to the upturned bell?

thx - Craig

thx much for the word to search for... looks to me like Yamaha, Selmer, etc never took the dive and produced this horn. More of a curiosity than a main stream sax from what I've read. At least I got to hear it on the concert I mentioned...
