I just ran across one of these. I didn't know Selmer made a sopranino before the BA. Pete, you ever heard of this? I can't find a mention anywhere...

The above 'nino was sold in 2006. Saxquest.com was asking $5K for it. I dunno if it sold.

I think I saw on Selmer.fr that they mentioned that they were producing "all" pitches of sax by the Modele 26. The oldest C melody I have pics of is in the 2000-range. Bari in the 900 range.

All that being said, please post pics!

Thanks Pete! I just bought one pretty cheap. It's on it's way. One owner closet horn, body and mechanics perfect and still the original pads--playable--with original mpc and cap. Lacquer has a few age spots but basically no wear. I'm kinda excited...I'll do pix as soon as it arrives.

It'd definitely be interesting to see what the intonation is like.

There's a BA 'nino on Saxquest's Saxophone.org website. It'd be interesting to do a comparison.

It really appears that the only difference is the addition of pearls to the alt F# and G# keys. Interestingly, the only difference between the Modéle 22 Bb sop and the BA curvy is the addition of that same F# pearl.
