Here is a great clip showcasing the sound of a pre-war Big B paired with an EB tone edge. I thought I’d post it since you are not likely to come across it on YouTube unless you search for Akihiro Nishiguchi specifically.
Im looking between two saxophones, wondering which you guys think is better. They are both second hand instruments.
Yts-275, excellent condition $1475aud
Buescher Aristocrat Big b model 165, Not visually appealing, but seems to be fully playable. $1100aud
I have photos if you guys want...
Just because I have found things like this useful and interesting in the past, I thought I'd post this short demo of a Buescher Aristocrat 156.
Hope it's of interest or enjoyable - may be both or neither! Sorry for poor video quality; but audio is better :)
I just got an Aristocrat Buescher tenor and from reading posts in the forum I can tell it's from 1949-50 (by the serial number). I have two questions:
1. It has no neck. Where can I by one, and how much would it cost me?
2. How much does the sax worth (with and without the original neck)...
I just got a Buescher 156 347xxx. I am in the process of repadding it and getting it in shape to replace my Yamaha 23. It has all the snaps (except for the Low C#). I have delacquered it and hand polished it. It is looking great. It is a summer long project. Will post pictures once...
