I was recently told that a Buffet S1 soprano went up to high G. with keys to go that high - does anyone know if this is correct ?
Also, I've seen a pic on saxpics.com that shows the thumb octave mechanism - selmerish in a way. but i've also seen a pic of one that has a weird rocker that pushes down on a mechanism arm (i'm searching for the pics again).
Does anyone play a Buffet S1 soprano or have come across several that would know ?
Also, how do they play (mechanism-wise and tonal) in comparison to say Couf Superbas/ JK or even mk VIs - i know they all vary alike but any comparison information would be helpful. And yes, I know, Play test it but i just want to get some opinions.
