It was suggested to me that you Buescher fans would like to see this late C-melody. So I'm posting some pictures for your appetite!

It's a 1925 with serial number 190xxx. There are no snaps and without lifting a pad I won't be able to tell you whether it ever had them originally.

P.S. (It's for sale! See the horns for sale sub-forum).

It had snaps originally.

A late C-mel is hard to find. Particularly one in playing condition. They are quite beautiful, and sound better than any others, but as you can probably tell by the keylifts, they really do have awful ergonomics if you have large hands, though probably only marginally worse than any other TT if you've smaller hands than mine.

Here's mine -- A Series IV (230xxx), but essentially the same horn as the OP's. Took me a year to find one and I paid $350 for what was a non-functional horn with its orginal pads and corks. Cost me twice what the OP is asking in his ad to put it back in playable condition.

They are hard to come by with the factory Front F and 4-roller spatula.

Thanks to Sugru, I was able to make some nice, albeit chunky, right hand palm key lifts.
