(Pete) I'm still attempting to determine if these folks made their own horns, stenciled them from others or had horns made by others to their specification. I've heard of "definitely a B&S stencil," "definitely a J Keilwerth stencil" and "they stenciled from a lot of folks." I think the last one is probably accurate.

(Helen) The Romanian company Arta Guban of Timisoara, made some very beautiful saxophones. From the research I have done however, the reviews of them is rather mixed. More people spoke badly of the altos than the tenors, but either way, they were often described as "dreadful" in the way they played.
