I own a Buescher 140 Aristocrat, probably in the ballpark of 1950 or 1951. It's a wonderful horn and has a great sound, though, it took me a while to find a compatible mouthpiece (Morgan NY ended up working absolutely fantastically with it.)
However, the end plug I've been using as a stopgap...
As a christmas present I was given a second alto sax, my great great uncles who died before I was born. I love the way it plays and the tone of its low range compared to my horn, but cant find any information on it. Anyone know anything?
Serial number is 7134
Now this is a Dukoff that has obviously had some work done to it… but for the life of me I have no idea what (apart from someone who's clearly done a very good reface because it's one of the most responsive pieces I've ever played!)

Hey folks, I saw an advertisement on Instagram for the woodwind "Phil's Attic" offer of vintage Rovner G ligatures for 50% off, limited quantities, limited sizes.
Wanted one for my tenor large chamber HR mouthpieces, so I ordered one.
Here's a picture. Does anybody know the story on these?
Could anyone help me identify those mouthpieces? The seller is saying they are made in Germany but didn't give other infos on them. I bought a Keilwerth new king with a very similar ligature as those in the picture. Any help would be appreciated.
I just want to start off saying that this is is my first posting.
After purchasing a vintage conn Tenor and going down the rabbit hole of learning about what it is, I discovered that it is a Naked Lady Transitional from 1934. Now After dragging this thing around with me for a...
