I just revived a year's old post from CanadaBob regarding a PAN alto. This horn has similar features and both could be Pierret inspired. Can you compare the cluster keys to the Pierret Artiste? Are both low B and B-flat lever actuated? Does it have multiple serial numbering e.g. on neck and under G#?

Ive got two of these...Im 99% sure they are Grassi stencils. Check out the bow bands on Grassi's @ saxpiccs. I also saw a thread somewhere that had a serial# and date. Seems like it was late 50's or early 60's.

Would you like to buy another one (or two) cheap...PLEASE

Now I just need to find some pads that fit
