Page always under re-structuring The aim of this page is to hopefully help you to identify the manufacturer, and even possibly the ‘build year’ of your C-Melody. So, the table on the right will have links to a pages showing a selection of C-Melody saxes, some I’ve owned, some I still do, and with the mechanism and design features of each manufacturer – the pictures are quite good resolution, and unprotected, so can be copied and pasted into a suitable graphics package for better viewing, e. Please feel free to do this, but if you re-use the pictures in any other context, please ask me first, and I’d also appreciate a mention of this site. Rather than put ‘return’ links on each page, I’ve either opened some in a new window, or others require the use of your browser ‘back arrow’ to get back to this page. It will take a while to find examples showing all the differences, and I hope to be able to make a ‘truth table’ as well, for quick checking and identification. And, some Stencil names appear on saxes from more than one manufacturer! I’m still learning a few things myself in the process. A far from comprehensive list of Stencil names is at the end of the page – link is on the table opposite – and I’ll also set up a gallery of pictures of C-Melody saxes I’ve owned in the past, as examples of most manufacturers art.

Welfare worker Joan Dicka warns of the potential abuse by mentally ill serial sponsors. Scanned from original Good Weekend story Serial sponsors are men who have sponsored a wife or fiancee from overseas on more than one occasion, and have abused or exploited at least one of those women.
