Buescher baritone key guards

3223 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  abadcliche
I have observed that True-Tone and Aristocrat baritones had a "wire"-style key guard for the low B natural, which makes sense seeing as the key is on the left side of the instrument. However, I have never seen a Big B baritone with key guards, nor do I believe they ever had them.

My question is simply: Why is this so? I really could use them on my Big B, especially while standing during playing. Any thoughts?

The big B had Buescher 400 style bell keys. The heights we adjusted in a different manner and they are positioned on the back of the bell near the body tube leaving no room for key guards.
