  1. I recently came across one of these Vito model 35 marvels, though most of my playing time was spent during my youth with a Selmer mark 6 Tenor, I really enjoyed playing this horn so the more I looked the loster I got until I found you folks, my only question is why is there no country of production on the darn thing mine is exact to the 35 French with the neat neck brace with Vito on it, but I turned the horn upside down then tried turning myself upside down and I can’t find where this was made, is it because it is a stencil? It has definitely never been re- laquerd
    Please help

  12. I have a VITO straight soprano that I’ve had since 1971. Bought brand new. research has indicated that it is one of the first series of VITO sopranos made by Yanigasawa. It’s been a great horn, never needed repairs in all those years. recently I decided to have it checked by a good repairman and he said it needed nothing. So I’m sold on VITO’s. I have a line on a VITO tenor, that I’m going to buy, but would like to know more about it’s origin. Serial # 23625 and is stamped “Made In France”. Is this possibly the student version made by Beaugier? spelling not correct I know.
