Well only got a Buffet Prestige Tenor. Been chasing this horn for months. At last I got it. So happy I must say. Bare copper body and neck and a spare brass neck. All good things to he who waits.

Nice looking horn! Was it made with a naked body, neck and bell and lacquered keys or did a previous owner de-lacquer it?

It's been stripped. Copper is a lovely patina

How are you liking the S1 keywork on the Prestige? I like the trick pinky clusters myself; kind of jelous of the Prestige's copper body!

Feels great. Very slick ergos. My S2 is the same as the Prestige apart from the low Eb/C table and a brass front F. Both are wonderful to play. Can't believe it took me so long to try a Buffet. Better late than never they say. Next will be a Buffet soprano. Will be getting the S2 delacqured also. I always like unique horns and these sure are.

Great horn! The copper colour is very cool, I loved this finish...

Very nice! Never seen a prestige tenor. Love the altos - one of the players in a band I play with has one, and it's a super-slick machine.

I'll be the dissenting voice here, though, finish-wise - I prefer the look of the laquered horns. The non-patina copper colour is just gorgeous. To each his/her own...

Thanks! Just waiting for Buffet to launch the Senzo soprano to complete the family!
