    Default B & S 600 on ebay

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/B-S-beautifu...QAAOSwjqVZBpJZ

    This looks suspiciously like a Taiwanese tenor.

    Thoughts?

    Student level B&S were made in China/Taiwan, as far as I know. Maybe just assembled in Germany to justify a "made in Germany" label...

    Found this article that seems to confirm that 600s were made in Taiwan. I dont know that they say made in germany anywhere on them?

    That rather contradicts a different interview with the B&S marketing manager, but if you cant afford to make a $3000 pro sax in Germany then Im pretty sure the economics are firmly against making your student model there instead.

    The other interview is here for those interested...

    Canadian thanks for sharing those links. Makes me sad that these are no longer being produced though.
