Hi all,

I'd like to give my Buescher True Tone stencil some TLC, namely replacing springs, a couple pads, and in particular the pivot screws. This sax was previously owned by a middle school, and except for the nice relacquering that it's had, it looks and feels it. I've been looking around at various repair sites, but haven't had much luck finding springs or screws for sale. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of pivot screws for a True Tone?

My main indication that the screws needed help was that one almost crumbled to pieces when I unscrewed it to clean a dirty pad. Yikes....

Jim

You can either use the pivot screws off of an older Bundy or post-Selmer buyout Aristocrat as they are the same thing- most techs have at least one of these in the parts/junk pile. These screws can also be ordered from www.krausmusic.com if you are a technician.
