    I helped convince Helen to get this horn. I know, I'm an enabler of her sax buying habit.

    If you mean a Couesnon-provided serial number chart, I think you're correct on that. Couesnon saxophones and other brasswinds, at least, had a little "grenade fruit" stamp with a number in it and the...

    The bass trombonist, in a group I played a long time ago, sat directly in front of me. He really didn't like it when I bought a Berg Larsen (read: jazz/rock) hard rubber mouthpiece for my bari.

    Jupiter has gotten a lot better. I'd believe that you probably can't discount them as "poor quality" instruments anymore. Are they as "good as" a Yamaha? I think it's a question of taste, now.
