I also asked a few questions about the Sarrusextet and got the following answer:

>sorry ,no polaroids,but look like standard sarrusophones, a set of six(6)means soprano to contrabass Bb and Eb alternately,they
>were never played,because they are prototypes questions? call germany +49 172 250 05 78

One question was whether they were high pitch or low pitch.

General question for List:  Does anyone know if prototypes tend to be good instruments?  My assumption that one purpose of a prototype is to work out bugs, which may mean moving things around a bit.   Is any of this likely to have a bearing on how well the horns work or how long they would last?   Do production runs reproduce the prototypes or are there likely differences?  Are many horns in collections actually identified as having been prototypes?  Such an unusual think to (presumably) know about such old instruments.
