    Pretty neat. Is there a make/model on the bell?

    Neat; make sure you use a good quality cyanoacrylic glue when assembling- plastic cement in a tube doesn't create as rigid a bond and consequent flexing/vibrations will affect the tone....

    1/6th the size of a tenor? That would make it a what, double-contra-nino?

    I'm looking at the picture of the kit, thinking about the hours it would take to assemble... if I wanted to spend that much time tinkering with a sax, I'd rather do my own overhaul. But to each his own.
