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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gWWRbDA13o
Hope it's of interest or enjoyable - may be both or neither! Sorry for poor video quality; but...
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...
