    Keywork looks Buffet...especially left hand stack.

    I think that low C# has the older Dynaction design, not the SDA design. I'm also guessing the horn is not truly a Buffet in its pedigree because it was made in Italy. I was once fooled by the similarities on another horn like this until the experts explained its true provenance. With a little research you should be able to find the thread I am referring to.

    The Evette-Schaeffers were made in Italy in the 70s-80s so perhaps this one is made by the same factory thus the similarities to the Buffet.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I am pretty sure Bruce, behind Door #3...has it correct. These are the quite common, Italian-made Evettes of the '70's...or at least the bodies...lozenge bell braces...so being that they were the student-line Buffets...it'd make some sense that some of the keywork looks similar. market value around $300-400.

    I questioned the seller on whether it read Buffet or Super Dyn anywhere, and he said no....then he proceeded to alter the title of the auction just a bit so it now is a bit more weasel-wordy....

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but an Evette made in Italy is not really a "poor man's" Buffet SDA (or even DA for that matter). Even if it is a decent player, it should be valued accordingly.

    That was what I was leaning toward, too. All this is is your basic Evette-Schaeffer '70's horn (stencil name at that)...NOT bad players at all, actually....but no relationship to a high-shelf Buffet, France horn....

    Buffet probably sent some designs or horns to them to copy and anything too expensive was deleted and these horns may have gotten stenciled for others.
