  1. Buescher
    Hey Buescher buds! I've been happily playing my Big B Tenor for 8 or 9 years now and am still as in love with it as when I first got it. The past five years I have been having this issue where two or three times a year I'll take my horn out to play and G# will not budge- it will be super sludgy...
  2. Buescher
    Fellow saxwomen and saxmen, I had the good fortune (maybe) of coming across a Buescher Big B tenor at a garage sale for $150. I had to check the serial number on a chart just to be sure it was an Aristocrat III (SN# 306011). It is difficult to make out most of the engraving due to serious...
  3. Bb Tenor
    Hi SOTW gang! I've recently bought a 1940s Buescher TH&C and on the whole I'm very much a fan of it - especially the sound. But I've been having problems with the left hand pinky keys (who doesn't) - its not actually the vintage layout but the sheer weight of the C# key. Interestingly enough...
  4. Buescher
    I recently purchased a beautiful Supertone Bandmaster (what a cool name!!) vintage silver-plated alto saxophone on Reverb. I have been researching this stencil but have mostly found information about Conn and Martin made stencils under this name. I have only seen one other one that looks like...
  5. Buescher
    Hello, I'm being offered this soprano for about 500 USD. I know the good reputation of True Tone sopranos, but since this is from 1920 (a series II according to saxpics), I wonder if it is as good as later series. It is working and with new pads but I would need to drive for 2 hours to check it...
  6. Pads and Resonators
    I recently bought a 1938 Ariatocrat alto and will attempt a DIY repad using snap pads. The sax is in original condition and the studs are in place.The problem is which pads to choose? Any recommendations on thickness, materials, supplier, metal backing or not, hole size etc would be much...
  7. Eb Alto
    I own a Buescher 140 Aristocrat, probably in the ballpark of 1950 or 1951. It's a wonderful horn and has a great sound, though, it took me a while to find a compatible mouthpiece (Morgan NY ended up working absolutely fantastically with it.) However, the end plug I've been using as a stopgap...
  8. Buescher
    This was my dad's sax from when he was in high school - mid 60s. All original as far as I know and in pretty good condition compared to some of the others I have googled. Serial # is 345xxx and user those numbers it has 156. Not a Big B, just Buescher with floral engraving above and below. I'm...
  9. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    It's like I am cursed and blessed.. 2nd week in a row, this time a 1918 Buescher that I picked up today for a Benjamin.. It is cleaning up nicely and plays well with a different neck... Corking original neck tomorrow.
  10. Alto mpc
    Hello, I bought a 1926 Buescher True Tone alto sax on eBay and I received it today. The listing said it comes with the original mouthpiece, but it doesn't look like I expected it to. It doesn't have a shank at all. After google searches and looking for mouthpieces for sale, I couldn't find any...
  11. Buescher
    Hello! has anyone come across any of these necks, and if so, have you seen them in anything other than a 1? I love the neck of my TT but I'd be curious to find one of the other necks available for TTs if they're still floating around somewhere. Thanks!
  12. Eb Baritone
    Hi . . . I acquired a Buescher True-Tone Baritone Sax a couple years ago. It is serial number 215778 and tagged a 'Low Pitch' horn. Trying to determine its year of manufacture and potential value. It's in pretty great shape, so I'm guessing it may have been refinished a number of years ago...
