    The other thing is that the majority of Conn instruments made prior to about 1917 are high pitch, unless otherwise marked. "High pitch" is an intonation standard that's incompatible with today's...

    There's a rather extensive thread on Sax-on-the-Web regarding Buescher baritone model numbers. I'm not looking it up ATM, because I'm lazy, but the upthrust is you really shouldn't look at model...

    I decided to elaborate because it's moderately important for other folks that might come across this thread.

    First, no Selmer New York horns were made by Selmer Paris. (Selmer Paris is the...

    No, Conn didn't make this baritone and the Selmer Modele 22 isn't a stencil of anything, but if you're happy with that, it works for me. Enjoy the horn.

    Which reminds me: "ROC," which is engraved or stamped, is "Republic of China." That's Taiwan. An example is the Keilwerth ST90 (I think series II and later) saxophones.

    FTFY.

    There are no accurate US-made stencil serial numbers. What you generally do is figure out what horn was stenciled and add on a few years. In this case, the professional model that this...

    We now have another sponsor, SeaWind Music. Again, this is a non-Flash ad. The proceeds from this ad are mostly going to go toward buying vBulletin v6, when it's available, or some other forum...

    Take a peek. This is the neck from the Selmer New York. This is a pic of the neck from a True Tone the Selmer NY was stenciled from (thanks to Helen's pic gallery). To me, I see a big difference...

    Of course, you could also get a rental or lease-to-own. While you'll probably only see student or intermediate horns if you do this, there are a lot of really good student and intermediate horns out...

    You've gone from Yamaha to Buffet to Selmer. It might be more helpful for you to post what you want out of an instrument and how much you're wanting to spend.

    It looks a lot like a Chinese instrument called a "Suona." The difference, obviously, is that the pictures of all the Suonas I've seen have a double-reed mouthpiece.

    It's also possible it's one...

    Also note that these come in a variety of tip openings: 105. 115, and 120. I'm fairly sure I have a C85/120, which is supposed to be the easiest blowing one. The C85/115 seems to be the "middle of...

    The YCL-650 is a professional horn and the Buffet E-12 is an intermediate horn. All other things being equal, I'd go for the Yamaha. Hey, they're about the same price, new.

    EDIT: I checked the links for support. They're dead. The app was released in 2009. So, Terry, you might want to post which version...
