    Perhaps you mean "Cecilio"? If so, I've seen this brand sold on eBay, and probably most or all of what was said in the thread about the "Venus" brand saxes applies here too.

    For the rest, I'll...

    Well, I was holding steady at 82 until people brought up amending it to include non-sax items.

    Never mind the C flutes or the alto flute, how many points for the old German simple system flute,...

    Good point and I've already done something like that. Since the bell key bumpers cannot be adjusted on this horn (though they look like they can be), I just cut them down with an Exacto knife. ...

    I can't believe my account's still here, it's been at least two years since I've posted. :) I recently got a Venus alto in plain gold lacquer, for just over $200 including shipping. I wasn't...

    Wow, that really is a great price on a new intermediate solid silver flute!

    I forgot to comment on the B foot earlier. The B foot is useful to me for playing in church, what with all the songs in...

    Hah! We've converted someone else to the Dark Side! :D :twisted:

    But seriously, the Gemmys have been criticized to some extent for their construction and longevity, but I'd still have to say...

    Low blow, Bootman (pun of course intended). As punishment, one piccolo Bb3 has been sent Down Under, and for you ff of course rather than pp. Oops, did I shatter the good crystal? :D

    Hey now, what's going on in here? I seem to have come into this discussion too late to defend the piccolo from all these people dissing it! 8)

    I also don't know about "should", but the forked Eb key is functional on my Pan American (Conn) soprano from the early 1920s. I actually use the alternate fingering sometimes and it does come in...

    I'm guessing (based on my high school level German) that the writer means "tone holes". The German word for "cave" looks roughly like a soundalike for "hole". Or perhaps "cages", i.e. key...

    I used my A586BC in church yesterday, and if your experience winds up being like mine, you will probably be pleasantly surprised. Intonation is VERY secure on this horn, in fact I found I could...

    The WW&BW offers the AAS22 for $600, brand new. This is a student horn and is unlikely to be rare. I believe that Amati is located in the Czech Republic. A forum search for the brand name gave me...

    I think the M stands for Marigaux, maker of fine oboes to this day. Not that I know a word of French either. :o

    That being said, and not knowing anything else either, I still think that the horn...

    I appreciate the direct comparison to the older 580 model, this is very interesting. I also tried a 580BC before ordering the 586BC, and although there apparently was no comparison, I am also...

    That's the horn all right. Mine is a 31k series also, so mine and yours were probably built in the same year, somewhere around 1921. Also I got in a metal Yani #7 from Bootman just today, and I am...
