  1. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello! I've been lurking a while, and finally signed up so I could lurk some more... while trying to decide what make sax to start on. So this is kind of an introduction for me as well. I already play clarinet - not a genius or anything - I play for fun - and want to start learning the...
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm getting back to playing saxophone again after about 7 years away. Playing used to be such a major part of my life but life, school, and finances got in the way. But i'm back and ready for that part of my soul to be fulfilled. Only been half alive without this. Currently, i'm looking at...
  3. Buescher
    Hello Everyone, I have been playing since '89 with a huge hiatus the last 12 years (marriage, kids, career) and am just getting back to playing with all the excitement of a new student. I have always played Selmers. Started with a Bundy II tenor (not really a Selmer) then to a '56 Mark VI alto...

    I have the opportunity to buy a Buescher True Tone C-melody sn 94xxx (1921), low pitch, for around 730 US$. The condition of the horn is great, with new pads. The finish is silver. Is this a fair price? Thank you for your help! -Trygve
  5. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi, first time posting. I'm looking to shift my Buescher Truetone Tenor, as I no longer play it. It's very old (approx. 100 years) but is in playing condition. It is a bit scruffy though. I'll be selling it in a hard case, with a selmer mouthpiece (will amend this post with the model and...

    Hi everyone, I am going to cut to the chase. I recently purchased an antique Buescher C Melody Stencil which I am going to overhaul by myself. I believe it is nearly identical to the True Tone (I will try to attach some images that lead me to believe this), but I have had trouble finding a lot...
  7. Eb Alto
    So I currently own a YAS-62 ii which I bought in November 2012... The YAS-62 is meant to be a "professional" model, and it is my first saxophone. I've been browsing through the forums recently and I wanted to give vintage saxophones a go :) I've done quite a bit of research and watched a bunch...

  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey everyone! I have this issue with my horn and I've looked on several other forums for fixes but haven't taken action on any yet. I wanted to get some solid advice before I start playing operation. It's an Alto sax, Buescher True Tone (based on what I've been told and researched) 248xxx I've...
  10. Buescher
    Hi everyone, I have a Buescher baritone saxophone that I bought quite a while back. I liked how it played, and wasn't overly concerned with what I was purchasing at the time. Now, I am a bit more interested and would like to figure out exactly what it is that I have. Its serial number is...
  11. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Why does my, new to me, Buescher True Tone C-Mel, 129XXX, quack like a duck through the lower register? This is my first sax with snap in pads, do the snaps rattle? I leak tested it, all tight. Playing with a Yana #7 metal tenor MP that sounds great on my King Tenor from same era.
  12. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hey everyone. I'm currently working on my masters in saxophone, and I am deeply in love with my Big B tenor and alto (1940 and 1941 respectively). After saving up some money and deciding it's time that I buy myself a soprano, Buescher is naturally one of the brands at the top of the list. So far...

    "3 buescher tenor saxophones, 2 from the early 50's, 1 from the 60's" and this picture are the only information I have. Can anyone tell what they are from the pictures?? p.s. I have been referred to, and reading this forum a billion times in the last few months via Google after trying to learn...

    My friend's husband passed recently and she is looking to sell some of his instruments. She has a Buescher sax, marked "Evette-Schaeffer Paris France" with a serial number 7962. From what I've gathered on a few websites, this sax could have been manufactured somewhere between 1888-1908. I'm...

  17. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hello everyone. I am in the market for a tenor and I have been offered these two. A '66 Buescher 400 and a Yamaha 52. Not much of a price difference. I'm not sure which one would be better. Both horns look great. I will be buying online, so I will unfortunately not be able to play them before I...
  18. Pads and Resonators
    Hello, I recently purchased a Buescher Elkhart 30a tenor with serial number 56*** from around the 1920s. The pads are sketchy and need to be replaced. I cannot confirm that they are snap-ons. Can anyone guarantee this before I delve deeper into it? Thanks in advance, Brady

    Hello Everyone! I'm a saxophone student at SUNY Fredonia where the "Sigurd Rascher" school of thought reigns supreme. I, initially being a tenor player, wanted to purchase an alto. On eBay I saw a Buescher True Tone for $700 and thought it was a steal because even getting it overhauled would...
  20. Buescher
    After many different horns over the years, from Mark VIs to 6Ms, I find myself without an alto again. After many good experiences with trying out Buescher horns and having used to play a late 400 bari and a TT tenor way back when, I have decided to pick up a series I 'crat alto. I found a decent...
