How can I argue with anyone who uses a pic of Marty Feldman ( as Igor - in Young Frankenstein ) in his profile.......
The second (alto) pic looks a bit like a modern version of the extra RH keys that operated the bell notes, that some Buffets had in the early 1900's. Is this a quiz, or do you know which sax it's from ?
this horn might play great.. I love the wooden paraschos neck and they also look great. This sax is very akward looking.. I bet paraschos or another experinced woodwind manufacturer would be able to make a straight soprano, alto and tenor that wouldn't look loke a fence! They might even be able to make curved horns if some parts are split in halves (like the paroschos necks)...tarogatos which are conical-bored look great but they have clarinet-like keywork so I do not really consider them saxes..
Cmel, if you get a look at some of the older Oskar Adler German horns you will see similar right hand stack keys as that link you posted. I have one of the altos with the spatual keys over the right stack, waiting for an overhaul.
Speyman, what is your source for those pix? I want to see more.
The wooden horn looks like a contrabass recorder in many ways.
