I have a Buescher TT Tenor 1924 by serial#. The finish of the sax is a dark color gold. What is the sax during this era made of? Just curious. The sax is in great shape, no dings or dents and sounds fantastic. I beleive the sax was only used for a year and put up for storage and the finish just turned dark. Is there a polish that can be used to bring back the shine?

Brass was the material used, with various platings used by various makers.

Most will not recommend "shining" the sax, but just cleaning with a soft cloth. I would love to have a horn with a mellow dark finish. I'd say leave it alone.

Gold does not tarnish, but it can get dirty. I woudl like mine to be clean - in fact, that is actually the case with my alto which is GP. Some care is needed to avoid rubbing of the plating, but it can be done and the effect is stunning.
