    Hey everyone! Back with a new video. I don't see a lot of videos of people playing C Melody Sax, let alone videos of people playing bebop on it, so here you go! Let me know what you think, and enjoy!

    Hey everyone! Back with another C Melody Sax video. A bunch of people have requested to hear a ballad on this instrument, so here it is! One of the most beautiful of all time - "My One and Only Love." Let me know what you think, and if you have other song ideas let me know!

  4. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I've started fixing my 100 year old Buescher C Melody, and I've ran into a bit of trouble. Most of the keys have been removed, but all of the main keys, along with a few side keys, and the screw for the octave key on the neck are stuck. I've used a ton of WD40 and WD40 rust removal, and although...

    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...

    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.
  7. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Hi all, I recently came into ownership of a C Melody saxophone with minimal engraving, and I'm hoping for some assistance identifying the manufacturer and any other information I can get. The engraving is limited to the front of the bell, which says "Standard Artist's Model" with some...

    Hey guys. I have the neck issue sorted out. Now for the date of my sax. Under the thumb hook, is listed as following: 63759 (Serial Number) Low Pitch License Pat. Dec. 8 1914 Does this help identify the date any? Can Anyone lookup that serial number and tell me what year it is, and if...

    Hey guys, I'm new here :) I have a C Melody Sax, Evette & Schaeffer, with no neck. Can anyone assist me in locating one? Or will other brand C Mel necks fit? I am eager to play this saxophone I had never heard of before. I appreciate anyone's input! Thanks!

    Here is my 1919 Wurlitzer (Buescher stencil) C melody. I disassembled it and polished it all up. Took it to Saul Yanez to overhaul it. Had it done with black roo pads and black felts. It goes real nice with my 1928/29 Buescher alto.

    I'm new here as a contributor, but I've been lurking for awhile. Years ago in a buying frenzy I bought a Gretsch Great American C Melody, and promptly put it in storage when I could only get one note out of it. I've been playing my saxes more lately, and have flipped a few after doing some...

    as the thread title states, I would like to sell some mouthpieces. First is a Bill Street 7J. The 7 is the tip opening and J is for jazz.... this is a really open mouthpiece. I got Bill to make me this mouthpiece in 04' i believe and I played it steadily for a couple of years until I started...
  14. Buescher
    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...
  15. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I'm hoping this is the right place to ask a question about my Wurlitzer C Melody saxophone. It has the tenor neck and I'm pretty sure it is a stencil, maybe a Buescher. My question is: The five digit serial number is preceeded by the capital letter, "P". Is there...
