vintage buescher

  1. Necks
    I currently own a 1936 Buescher custom built bari, it is in great condition but the neck is ultra small. My teacher and I seem to agree that its overall 'sharpness' is due to the short neck. As a result, and because I've read that it's ideal for classical saxophone, I'm looking into investing in...
  2. Buescher
    Hello SOTW, I just bought a Buescher Aristocrat alto and i was wanting to get some infomation on it. As in the title. it has a serial # of 509xxx, the finish is a little worn but really good compared to other vintage saxes. So I was wondering what year it is and what is the value of it, given...

    I've got a beauty of a 1950 Buescher Big B bari with a short original neck that tunes great to A-444 with Vandoren V5/B35 and V16/B5 mouthpieces, but yanking out the neck and wobbling a mouthpiece on the cork just doesn't get to 440. I like the V16 more of the two, as it opens up the mid and...

  5. Cases

Naturally, I love the horn and the sound that I get. I want to be able to keep this horn safe so that I can enjoy many...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I have a vintage Buescher Sax - have no idea if it's Alto, Tenor etc... Sorry, but I don't play and this was my great-uncle's sax. I believe from the serial numbers it was produced in perhaps the 30's or 40's, but am not certain. Could really use advice on how to tell what type of Sax I have...
