Buescher Aristocrat "Big B" Alto Saxophone, Near Mint
1946 Buescher Aristocrat "Big B" alto saxophone. Here is a vintage Buescher alto sax that is in nearly mint condition with 99%+ of the original lacquer remaining. The sax still has the original snap in resonators and gold Norton springs. The snap in pads are almost all original as well and in excellent playing condition.
My tech just performed a full regulation, only having to switch out the high F pad. Otherwise, I believe all the original snap in pads are still present and in excellent condition. The sax seals very well and the horn has a gorgeous, centered sound from top to bottom. The neck is original to the horn and in perfect condition.
These are legendary saxophones from a great vintage. In its condition, this may be one of the finest examples out there. The sax comes in its original case which is in equally great condition.
