    Okay, I am starting to see Bueschers in my sleep... LOL Can I get some feedback on the various types of Buescher tenors and their quality of sound and play? As well as a bit more understanding as to post buyout, prebuyout (other than after Selmer purchased and before Selmer purchased) The...

    I have an Aristocrat Alto that has been overhauled at least once back in about 1976. It is either a 335xxx or a 385xxx very difficult to read the serial. I played the heck out of it through college and then put it away (1988) in pretty worn out condition. My son is now playing and ready for...

    So I have this Buescher Aristocrat Big B alto saxophone, serial number is 297232. It's lacquer is shiny, almost TOO shiny. And it's not that dark honey lacquer that most Buescher Aristocrat owners talk about. It's more of a Yamaha-yellow lacquer. Also: Engraving is not dull, but not very sharp...

    I am a relatively new player and late bloomer. I have a Taiwan Vito tenor and a great interest in vintage horns. I just bought a Buescher 400 alto from the bay. I know never buy what you haven't played, but I have had good luck so far. I am excited and a little confused about this alto. It has...

    I'm thinking about buying a 1940's 297xxx Big B model for $600, I want to know how the ergonomics are, and if the keywork is too "vintage." Also, what's your mouthpiece/reed recommendation for an alto Big B? Thanks, also feel free to describe your experiences with the horn! (Alto)

    Hi, There is a tenor sax for sale on Ebay which puzzles me. It labeled as a Buescher Elkhart Tenor saxophone with a serial number 27188. I am wondering if it s really a Buesher or not. At the very least it seems to me be a Buescher Stencil prior to when Buescher bought the Elkhart Band...

    I bought an old oxidized tenor inscribed "the Buescher" True tone on Ebay. The Seller says it's from 1914. The serial number is VERY early (85XX) and it's dark brown in color. The horn actually looks like it stinks but I couldn't help myself. I can't post pictures because I haven't received it...

    I'm planning to sell my sax, but, don't have much information about it, it's a Buescher Aristocrat, serialnumber starts with 689xxx. I already seached the forum and google but can't find anything about a Buescher with this serialnumber. Don't even know what year the sax was made. Greetz, Sneezie

    I have recently purchased a vintage Buescher Tenor (1945-ish). Plays SUPER, but the lacquer is oxidized/discolored in a few places. Two things: 1. given the dark lacquer, can someone id the type (plain lacquer, bronze, etc)? 2. how can I clean that red stain (oxidation)? I have some...

    I started playing the Sax with my son who just started 6th grade band to try and motivate him. I just completed a '28 TT Restoration. I feel very fortunate to have <$250 in this great looking and sounding horn. This was my first attempt at a restoration project ever and after the tech mades some...

    Did a concert/clinic at a high school yesterday, and afterwards one of the alto students brought out his horn for me to try: a silver-plated "The Buescher" True Tone (I think the serial was 151xxx, which Saxpics says makes it a Series II...), and definitely an early ('20s era?) horn: no front-F...

    I have just purchased a very early post-Selmer Buescher Aristocrat (#404689) and there is NO engravings other than serial number, "Buescher" on the G# key, and the number 1040--under the serial number--NOTHING on the bell. The prior owner alleges it is an Aristocrat, but how can I be sure what...
  13. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi Friends! I'm new to the forum, and more importantly, to my newly acquired Big B Buescher Aristocrat. Here is the story, I was at a rehearsal, playing my usual instrument, the drums, when I noticed a sad little alto sitting against the wall. The reed, beyond words, chipped and...
  14. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    How do you compare these 2 in terms of tone, Intonation, keys action...etc? Is there any tone similarities? Why are the TTs much cheaper than the Aristocrats?

    Hi guys, My dad is trying to sell a Tenor saxophone, and he's a cancer patient running low on funds for medical attention, :(. Though I know nothing about instruments, I am trying to help him sell it. It is a Buescher, and from the serial charts that I have looked at it is either from the...

    Greetings, I have a beautiful silver plated mid-20's vintage Buescher True-Tone that belonged to my grandfather that I finally have gotten around to restoring. The silver plating is in good enough shape that I want to preserve it. However, at some point in its history (probably in the 50's...

    HI, i just bought this mouthpiece at ebay(i'm still waiting for it), it's a hard rubber Buescher from the 40's. It's a big mouthpiece with a large chamber and a small tip. I've never played or even saw a buescher mouthpiece, anyone knows anything about them? What can i expect? thanks

    Hi all, I am re-building my 1920s Beuscher True Tone which badly needs it. Everything disassembled and at the cleaning stage while I wait for my new pads, felts and suede to arrive. The inside on the horn is pretty bad, lots of green--never good. I was thinking of bathing it in a solution and...
