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 I've tried a Yanagisawa 901, a Selmer SA80 II, and a Martin Handcraft from 1925. Yesterday I was able to play a silver 1925 True Tone that played perfectly and was up for $2000 (negotiable), and I really resonated with its sound more than I have with any of the others I've tried. However, I felt uncomfortable pulling the trigger because I didn't feel like I had enough knowledge on what other kinds of Bueschers are out there. My main points of concern with this one was that there was no front F key and that the palm keys, specifically the high F key, were extremely low. I was wondering about what kinds of plating/lacquer options were available, and if the palm keys and presence of a front F changed at all as the production years get later. When did Buescher stop producing soprano saxophones? Also, if you have any advice on finding one I am all ears. Thank you!
