Didn't Buescher stop making tru-tones at around 1928-1929, and start making new aristocrat at around 1932? If so, what saxes were they making between then? Or, are my numbers just off?
This is so true. I think there are some variations from one horn to the next even among the same Buescher models (this is certainly true of other fine horns, like the MKVI, for example). My silver-plated 156 tenor definitely has something very special about it that I noticed the instant I first played it and it has grown on me over time. I know exactly what you guys mean about a "ring" to the tone. I don't hear that in my MKVI, as much as I like that horn, but both my Buescher Aristocrat tenors (156 and "art deco" series one) have it. The 156 has it in "spades."Roger Aldridge said:Regardless of what model we have, when one finds that special Buescher that really does it for us it is a treasure.
