  1. Part 2: An Extremely Brief Foray into Music Scanning (Music OCR)

    Don't bother.

    OK, I'll go into more detail: there's only one free application that's currently being developed, Audiveris. OpenOMR (Optical Music Recognition) hasn't been updated since 2013 and...

    I did some quick research and also wanted to mention that it looks like the Q49 comes with Ableton Lite 8, which is a decent MIDI sequencing app -- I'll talk about these much, much later. However, 8...

    Well, for what it's worth, the main reason nobody paid much attention to Pan American serial numbers is because these were Conn's second-line horns, i.e. non-pro. It's kinda like asking how old a...

    They're not all the same pics. The most important new pic is the one of the low C keyguard. Mercedes-Benz-ish, just like the Kohlert Modell 1926.

    Hey, my memory's working for manufacturer names. Kewl!

    I think I may have found this same horn on a different website. It's definitely a Kohlert Modell 1926 stencil. Pretty horn, tho.

    Yup. Of course, if I hear "ebay.de" and "Diamond saxophone," the obvious conclusion would be "Monnig Diamant." Of course, that assumes a lot.

  24. Question mark Germanic horn of the moment: Diamond

    Well, the ad doesn't specifically say that it's German.

    Split bell key. Interesting looking chromatic F#. I'd think Monnig Diamant, but I haven't seen other split bell key Monnigs.
