I bought a soprano a few years ago used. The origin is a little fuzzy though. I was told it was a Yanagisawa, but it has no markings other than the engraving "Artist". I have heard a story about this horn being a Yana stencil and imported around some trade limitations in the 90's.
Anyone have an idea if this is a Yana or stencil? It also has an attachment for a lyre.
Regardless (even if someone tells me its a "SEARS"), it plays like liquid and sounds fabulous.
