    You say you want a curved soprano? Go with an older Conn or a Yanagisawa.

      Curved Soprano

      I have the Yanigasawa curved soprano, bought it new a few years ago. I really like it. Intonation is very good, although it takes a little work. The Ab and C# keys tend to stick, even after getting warmed up. It blows easily. I wanted to get a sound that was not too sweet, but not so hard as Coltrane. I am still trying to find the best MP for it, but I enjoy playing this horn.
