    The "list price" number is something I feel is completely made up. I've been researching Yanagisawa. On their UK website they list list prices. I went to another UK dealer that also had list...

    Well, not terribly unusual. There were dozens of Germanic manufacturers that made saxophones and a lot of them made very similar-looking horns -- and those horns are generally variations on the Conn...

    Well, the lack of a serial number, G#/C#/B/Bb cluster, and the bell-to-body brace definitely rule out Kohlert. I was thinking perhaps Oscar Adler, but I don't know if they ever produced...

    I definitely agree that it's very hard to find Germanic sopranos and sopraninos from anyone other than Weltklang/B & S. Makes me wonder if folks in that section of the world just preferred clarinets...

    +1 on let's get the serial number. Germanic saxophones from around the time this one was made are a bit difficult to tell apart. The serial number gives quite a bit of insight. And, as Helen...

    OK. That video hurt. Even beyond the fact that it would only play in Microsoft Edge. Let's move that conversation to another thread.

    Yes, but it's neither the clarinet nor the Selmer are US-made and a clarinet isn't a saxophone. So there :P.
