    There is a site called saxophone.com GREAT Saxs for the price, (though they arent a mark VI or a SX=90) The only downside is that on the saxophone it says saxophone.com. they have a trial period and 30 day money back guarennte (spelling)

      how's their intonation? put your's up to a tuner if you can. If it has yamaha quality intonation, then the satin gold plated finish is for me....

          that is their brand. The horns say saxophone.com on them. But, if you're looking for a decent soprano, it probably doesn't matter about the name. Better to research them and try them against a tuner and with different setups. They look cool, but so does helmke. But, as a previous replier has stated that he has tried these horns, they're probably way better then helmke. Best to test the horn. -tenor562

          it is a great soprano but u may need a better mouthpiece if u are doing classical.
