@nathaniel you can let me take a look at it. i'm in los angeles too =)

@dee "It has a very clear, sweet sound. People are always complementing me on the tone."
I can understand the tone, but the sound doesn't come off as "colorful" as an r13. i'll need some more time to comment though.

"Instead of being plated, the keys on mine appear to be made of "German silver" (a nickel alloy that contains no silver and is not German)."

Hey vytas can you comment on the plating of the keys? they are definitely not pure silver as the selmer balanced tones, but do carry the shine of a selmer 10g, but not the feel of silver. Is the symphonie a german silver (nickel)? alloy? Is this why the symphonies didn't take flight against the thick silver plated selmers?

Was there an actual difference in symphonie releases in the 2, 3, and 4 series? or was this just a "new/old design model" marketed to keep leblanc's symphonie line going?

Lastly, was there ever a symphonie 5?

Also @dee, do you have any noticable notes pop out when you play in the chaleameau register?

Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. they are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which was already but too easy to arrive as railroads lead to Boston to New York
