    Default Stolen Couesnon Monopole Alto - eastern Canada

    A member of a local band had his Couesnon Monopole alto stolen on Friday night. They broke the back window of his car to get at it.

    I don't have the serial to post, but this suspiciously cheap alto just appeared on a local classifieds site in a town about 4 hours away. Seller is asking $75.

    Can anyone with a keen eye for Couesnons identify it from this bad photo? The pinky table looks like the right style, but that's all I can tell.

    Are the accessories the same as your friends? The bag and all? If so, well case closed, report to the police.

    If not, your friend can contact the seller and go see for himself.

    The horn in that ad isn’t a Couesnon at all!

    It is just an Amati .



    this is a Couesnon... very different

    Life is just a bowl... some have cherries in it, some don’t. Those who have the cherries aren’t likely to share them though.

    Thanks Milandro - I see the variation in the pinky table now... guess it was just wishful thinking that there might be a v1/v2 difference thing going on.

    The sax was taken in a soft bag, along with another bag containing the accessories and music, so this initially looked promising.

    that bag is a reunion blues, which, as far as soft bag go,is quite nice. Maybe your friend wants to acquire a cheap alto.

    Commiserations to him.

    Thanks, and yes this would be a very cheap replacement.
