  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Buescher
    Hi everyone, This is my first posting so please be gentle with me :P . I realise that necks are a common problem with old saxes and believe me I've tried to read as much on here as I possibly can but 1770 threads is a lot of reading. So apologies in advice if I'm asking silly newbie questions...

    Hello... I have just made a deal with a person who wanted to sell a Buescher True Tone tenor with gold surface.The serial number is 194XXX...He just posted some pictures so I could see that it was in such a good shape as he claims, but it made me wonder. I wonder if it is relaquered, and if the...
