But when I met Richard Mackie, managing director of B&H now owners of Buffet, I asked him to help. The first answer I had was that the soprano dated from 1956 and the alto from 1960! After a second try, he came back with the information in his fax of 4/6/90, dating them as 1897 and 1903 respectively! It pays to be persistent. Nominal Key: E flat. Key and system: brass, to Bb. B on L, Bb on R; simple octave keys, Key mount: brass posts on oval plates and straps, Cover: brass shape 37. Comes with black case. alto saxophone
