    Hello. I've got a LeBlanc System Vito alto saxophone. Serial number 653A. I've owned it since 1985. I bought it from my uncle who bought from a music store in Kirkland, WA in the late 60s. I believe he was the original owner.

    One more for your list.

    First one I see with a neck brace like mine. Looks like it's been played a lot.

    I recently got a Vito model 35, serial #2006A. Very nice tone with this horn. It has been re-padded but it needs some work. My tech is going to re-solder the bell/body brace and put in all new corks and felts. He will basically do a whole setup. He says re-soldering the bell brace is a common repair with these. I asked about adding a new spring to the high F# ala Jazzmanted on Youtube. He said he could probably make the existing spring work stronger. Anybody here actually added a second spring?

    I also asked him to move the strap ring lower. The current position causes the horn to act like the famous Conn Cobra. It wants to bite me in the face!
    Life is too short for long tones

    Vito Model 35 SN 271A. Picked up partly because my step-grandmother was a polisher at the Vito Kenosha factory. Keeping it because it kicks butt.

    Does the Model 120 have a high f# key?

    The model 120 might go back to about 1954 or 5 as a guess.

    The Vito late 1950's to mid 1960's as a reference 2086A also a model 35 was purchased 9/15/1966 (receipt) but how long did it sit on the shelf?

    Question for all of you more knowledgeable than myself.
    I have what looks like a Vito Model 9139 with No serial number. Does anyone know of any 9139's made without serial numbers?

    Hi, and thanks for developing the inventory list!
    Here are two more for the list.

    1) Beaugnier Special Perfect in silver plate. Tenor. Serial 6074. RH bell keys. Pearl buttons for left hand thumb rest and octave key.
    2) Revere. Tenor. Brass with/nickel keywork. Suspect 1957 manufacture. Serial 6414. RH bell keys. Almost an exact match with Beaugnier 6074. Two differences: one, no microtuner neck, and two, the octave key is not a pearl button, but metal shaped around the button (like an old Martin "the Martin".
