  1. Bb Tenor
    Greetings all. I just purchased a Buescher tenor sax, the serial number is 292084. This lead me to believe that it was (from the photos) an early Aristocrat. However, it has the True Tone stamp on the back and has the mother-of-pearl G# key. It has the snap on pads. So I am confused. Why would a...
  2. 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...
  3. 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!
  4. Buescher
    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...
  5. 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.
  6. Necks
    I recently purchased a True Tone (29-30) bari sax which came with a non-original neck. While I can play with this neck, the intonation is very poor as it's far too short a neck for the horn. I'm looking to purchase a new neck that works better, but I'd also like to know what the current one I...
  7. Buescher
    Hello all, Picked up a Buescher TT alto, nothing really super special, but noticed an engraving at the bottom of the bow. It's probably just a name of a previous owner, but maybe something more special. Can you guys make this out. I think it reads F.A. Grintlirer...? Photos here...
  8. Buescher
    I just scored a great-looking 20s Wurlitzer bari for $200 and I'm going to pick it up on Saturday. I'm pretty sure given the arched s/n engraving, pearl G# & arrangement of the LH pinky cluster, and positioning of the alt F# that this is a Buescher stencil but would love to get the opinions of...
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello there! I've just purchased a 1929 Buescher True Tone Alto, the horn needs some mostly minor repair, however, the G key hinge rod has a long banana bend, I was wondering which are good ways of straightening it back to its original shape. Thank you for reading, I'll very much appreciate any...
  10. Buescher
    So I acquired this old Buescher True Tone tenor. The serial number makes it a 1920 model. Pads have seen better days, rust on most all the springs, but basically sound. What's really interesting is that on the bell there are initials scratched into what remains of the lacquer, "JD." The cogs...
  11. Buescher
    Greetings, everyone. i stumbled upon what i thought was a good deal. But when it arrived, i realized it was a lemon. Aforementioned lemon is a Buescher True Tone Curved Soprano (High Pitch) - original brass finish, plays up to D# only. Oddly enough, this one has keyhole guards. Is there any way...
