A different M70 for sale, April, 2011

While this Dolnet does not have as good of ergonomics as a Selmer, it does have a complex tone with plenty of power in reserve which would make it suitable for jazz/blues outing where you need to cut through the big band brass curtain or project to the far end of that jazz club without a mic.
The M70 has kept the bigger bore (like Beaugnier) similar to the Selmer SBA.

Original lacquer in very good condition as I hope you can tell from the photos.

here is a photo of Lester Young playing a Dolnet.
And here is Don Byas' Dolnet with the custom "snake" neck octave key.
