Seeker Of A Clever Title.
I almost have enough money for a Buescher alto, and I will be going for the lacquered New Aristocrat that Junkdude has (I actually want to try out three, but I don't have enough money to purchase three at once). But, before I commit, I want to know if it will be hard going from my student Yamaha, which I've played since I started playing sax, to a 70-year-old vintage Buescher. Will there be any issues, like in intonation, or ergonomics? I've barely ever played on a vintage horn, except for when I blew on an improperly set up True-tone at a local Sam Ash for a couple of minutes. It was probably leaking like a sieve, and I was using a french style classical piece, so this really didn't give me a feel for the old horn. If there might be issues, how long would it usually take to get used to it? Would Junkdude's 7-10 day trial period be long enough? Thanks for answering.
