I am currently looking for a Selmer soprano, (please gang, don't spin, no other makers please)
The thread title says it all.
I have read most everything I can find. I still don't fully understand what are all the mechanical/layout diffs ? I read something about springs inside rods ???? Sounds a bit strange to me.
Sound is subjective, some say the Super 80 is a deeper sound, I like deeper in an in a bright horn like Sop.
Thanks all for response !!
Yrs ago I played VI's.. my first 2 Sops. Then over time some Vintage horns, Conn, Buescher, King, I tried Asian, Tai and Chinese, Kessler etc. Actually I bought a new II mid '80's but damn it was swiped about my 3rd gig in .. I do not remember much about,..GGrrrrrr...Then couple yrs later I bought a new series III silverplate. Over time I did not fall in love with it. No more III's
