Re: CONN SHERWOOD MASTER TENOR SAX
Yes, I have exerienced the lack of information available on stencil horns. I've also learned that serial numbers asscociated with stencil instruments do not correlate with those of their manufacturers. In my case, E.g. 'Sherwood...' to 'Conn'.
I am not as concerned with the monetary value, It's just nice to appreciate the history of the horn, and the beauty produced by it. So I wanted to know when the horn was made in part (to know), in part (to appreciate).
You have to have a pretty trained eye and acquaintence with horns to guestimate its' age in the way that you have with such attention to detail.
Thank you for your information. It was very insightful and most helpful.
