A Nice Beaugnier Tenor here. Reads "Lafluer, Boosey & Hawkes Canada, Made in France"

Given our usual whole 9 yards:

Chem bathed, solution-washed, soap-bathed, hand polished, bodywork (very little was needed), holes leveled, 33% new pads (the rest have plenty of life left in 'em, keys swedged, rods and screws cleaned, lubed, reassembled, regulated.

No beauty queen, original lacq at around 70% and she has quite a bit of spotting and scratches. We did some minor dent rollouts at the bow and bell, and there os some lacq loss in those areas as a result.
Neck had some minor pulldown which was best dealt with by actually disassembling most of it, then resoldering the brace and tenon. Geometry of neck tube is back where it should be, although in the process most of the lacq was lost. The neck still exhibits very minor dings here and there, but again the tube geometry is good and it blows well.
Key plating in decent shape a but of minor pitting here and there.

Okay, so honestly....one of the uglier horns we have done up in the past year. But again, clean as a whistle and the body and mechanics are completely up to snuff.

Horn plays up and down nicely, all rollers and keywork are free and snappy, intonation is in the pocket and of course she has that beautiful Beaugnier tone...a tad on the dark side, lush harmonics, with some nice focus and good edge when she is pushed.

Comes with a sorta mediocre gig bag, or I can include a better SKB case for an additional $59.

$439 + ship, a particularly low price for one of these - I usually selll 'em in the $650 area...but due to the lacq wear here, I dropped price.

Paypal, postal money order, bank cashier check. Paypal F&F will get you a discount, PM me to discuss.

The range of B&H stencils never ceases to amaze me. I have two B&H Canada Oxfords (alto and tenor), which are Kohlert Bixley stencils, probably from the '60s. Do you have a rough date for this Beaugnier-B&H, Jaye? Curious that it journeyed all the way to NM, too!

Well....it came from a seller in the midwest...Wisconsin or Michigan or somewhere thereabouts. I would say it is a late 60's, judging from the build and style...so not too far off from the R&C-made Oxford era.

This horn is SOLD, thanks !
