Hi, this is my first post here :)

I'm looking for an intermediate Sopranino with very good intonation and pleasant tone but I can't afford an Yanagisawa (the less expensive compared to selmer, R&C, etc.)
I'm thinking to the Bauhaus-Walstein Sopranino here:
http://www.woodwindandbrass.co.uk/acatalog/yanagisawa_sopranino_saxophones.html

I've read very good impressions about the B-W Soprano, it is the same for this Sopranino? It seems over the average of other taiwanese Yanagisawa copies all around, it is really different and improved?

With a good mpc (I think a selmer F) can be compared to the SN981?

Many thanks for every info, suggestion and help ! :)

BW don't seem to have any duffers in their range, I've played, albeit briefly, both soprano and baritones from BW and they are both very good. Light easy action with great pick-up and intonation.

I would expect the same from the sopranino.

Yes, I think so... :)
I see that it is one of their best selling saxophone, so I'm wondering if someone could share his impressions here...:sax:

A friend of mine has just taken delivery of a Bauhaus Walstein soprano and he is very pleased with it. Just another happy customer.

I bought a baritone last week ... and it's really quite heavy. The strap that comes with it is not really comfortable enough for the weight.
Can't think of anything else negative to say (looks great, tone seems even, build quality is very good), but I'm a complete beginner on baritone and have only been learning alto for about a year and a half, so I'm no great judge.

Bauhaus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus

Pronounced Bowhouse, where bow is pronounced the same way as the ou in house

Walstein - Not a recognised German word as far as I know, but would mean whale stone. Pronounced Vahlstine

I still don't like the colour.

Thanks for all replies :)

Even if this is one of the Best Sellers, I've still found nothing about how it play.:sax:
I appreciate the phosphor bronze body but, about playing, it is the most secret instrument of the world!! :D
