How would you tell the difference between a Bb and C soprano horn?

    I've not seen a C soprano without a "C" stamped in the vicinity of the serial number, though I suspect it is possible.

        the C soprano measures about 18 1/2", and the Bb is about 22". Like Sax_maniac said, there should be a "C" stamped on the horn near the serial number if it is a "C" soprano. Otherwise, blow a "C" and see if it's in tune with a piano!
