In your position I would hope that other voices appear, recommending me to buy a Bauhaus Walstein new for £500 or so. Several folks have compared the two saxes and the YTS 25 invariably comes off worse. The Yamaha Pro saxes are definitely good ones, but I think that the entry level ones are overpriced and not that good a sound. http://www.rowlandsmusic.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=437

Help is always at hand!

well, ok just above 500£.......but it is the non Action Improved brass model. It is a close call.......

My voices told me that a vintage sax is always a vintage sax!

Dolnet on its way from France.

Are you sure you want a Yama? Is that your first horn?

My voices (and a considerable experience in buying and selling saxophones) told me that there are some good Dolnets and some less good Dolnets......let alone the High Pitch Dolnets, I hope yours is in the first category.........

I will keep you updated. High pitch in 1960?
I mean, really high pitch, not 442.

My voices told me that a saxophone with such a beautiful engraving must be good.

I have just heard a voice from a Roger in Oxford who does not particularly rate the Action Improved over the Original model, which he rates very highly (and sells them!).

Yes, I’ve bought one alto, the other one was bought by a friend of mine.......they were rather common in the Netherlands (their use by marching bands is documented until the ’70) they are normally 5 Cm shorter than a normal alto or tenor.

Dolnet HP are 457 hz and have no way to identify them

Also I have bought and luckily returned a ’60 made Amati Baritone (they have a very small H by the thumb rest) and a Couesnon tenor

Scary tales....
At least it has the beautiful engraving.

I found out about my alto AFTER having it overhauled! ....... from then on, if possible, I always test before buying, especially French made horns. A friend just finished overhauling, without knowing it before, a HP Lyrist baritone.......

I keep hearing voices suggesting that I make myself a top quality espresso on my Lavazza Stove top Espresso maker................

those voices should of course know that a stove top moka cannot make a real espresso which requires a much higher pressure and a shorter extraction time...... but please, why not? Do that!
