Wow..... Probably the nicest example of the famous and rare 28M alto saxophone: the best saxophone ever produced by Conn (and probably the best alto ever). This one is in almost mint condition and it's really worth having a look at the pictures in the attachment, as this is a completely different saxophone design.....

Selmer serie 9 versus serie 9* clarinet :
Both the Selmer serie 9 and serie 9* are professional clarinets for the advanced player. They are not the same but there seems to be lots of confusion and incorrect info on these models.......
Here's some interesting stories about the Selmer serie 9 and Serie 9* clarinet I found on the internet :
In November 2017 MRO saxophones overhauled two popular Buffet Crampon clarinets at the same time. That was also a great opportunity to finally determine exactly what the actual differences are between these two types. The RC is considered the entry-level professional model; the E13 as an Intermediate model. Because I overhauled both types before, I already thought that the differences were minimal, especially with the older models.
Here is the list of the different Selmer mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone, with their associated markings.
In January 2016 MRO Saxophones started on a new renovation project : an alto saxophone Buescher New Aristocrat . In original and mint condition ! Interested in this vintage sax ? Call or email .....
The repair shop in Germany is now open! That means MRO Saxophones will distribute its activities across the two repair shops in Holland and Germany.
The German repair shop is located in Attendorn (Sauerland), and is easily accessible from the Ruhr area and the Frankfurt region.
In September 2015 this instrument came into the shop for major repair ( fall damage ). A maintenance check was also performed. Because these modern Amati saxophones are rather uncommon this was an excellent opportunity to review the sax.
There are many different types of clarinets built by Selmer (Paris), each with their own special features. Here's the serial number list of these clarinets, with the addition of a list of the various bores and barrel sizes.
