circa 1927 / 1928 buescher sopranos are very nice instruments. i used to have a silver plate of this same vintage; nice warm tone, terrific intonation. i regret having parted with it. happy bidding!

Yep, mine was goldplated. Ditto on the characteristics. I believe mine went into Gayle Fredenburgh's personal collection - at least for a while. ;)

Of all the sops I've owned, that would be the one to have back. :(

second that sad frowny face. my avatar is no error: i really am a meathead, sometimes. not having kept that horn is a shining example.

Are they good horns? You bet. I have two of them in silverplate from that year. They are superb in every sense of the word. DAVE

A great horn. The nice-looking re-lacquer took a lot of buffing, but you won't know the difference when you play it. If the pads, springs, corks, etc. are good, then even at the "buy it now" of $999 you can't get a better soprano for the price. (Also figure $100 extra for a good, hard case.)
