Jinbao is the factory that makes the Selmer S80 copy, and a variety of stencils, including the IW 661, Oleg, Hunter, et.al. Jinbao also sell bass saxophones under its own name.
To see more about these horns, check out this article on my Series about Asian-made bass saxophones.
If you want to see all the photos I have gathered on the various Asian-made bass saxophones by both Jinbao and Jinyin, check them out on our Bassic Sax Pix Galleries.

High quality bass saxophone in Bb. Its excellent intonation and an easy playability make this instrument perfectly suited for semiprofessional saxophone players.
