Looks like a really cheap Chinese no namer. Mother of pearl is plastic... It's an alto by the way.

depends on how long its been listed - if you pay for membership (a fiver a year) then you get to respond to the latest adverts , if you don`t pay at all, you can only respond to those a few days old

I second Chinese. However, I love that look of a white body with gold colored keys. If God played the saxophone, His would look like that. Oops, I forgot the saxophone is the "Devils Horn" (my bad).

I don't recognise the logo on the side of the bell. From what I can see of it, the case might be a Berkeley

B&S made white saxes in the 90's. Saxman Steve Wilkerson played/promoted B&S saxes. But probably a Asian made sax.

Agree with Thomsax - I remember the ads in the Saxophone Journal magazine - I think Sam Phipps ended up selling Steve's B & S tenor via Sax On The Web a few years back...

Could be a bargain for somebody if it is a kosher B & S sax...

Wow, funky-looking sax. It would have been nice for the seller to actually divulge that information in the first place.

Hmmm, can you find anything else about the brand? I've never heard of them, but then again I'm not into the vintage European brands so I don't know much on that topic.

How much should I offer then ;)
Firstly find out what it is. More photos, does it say made in Germany? Age? Looks as if the seller doesn't know much, so you might get little more than pics. A clear shot of the left side would help, as would a good shot of the neck. Ask the seller how much he/she wants.

Why is there doubt about it being an alto,there's definitely an alto neck showing ?
