I finally got my Buescher alto....this is a TT 230xxx series with front F and G# roller.

It was a gold plated......it was so dirty then I gave it a shower with medium warm to cold waters....

so very bad.....after I let it dried for a while I took it, suddenly seeing some platings worn off and expose the silver surface.....I then put it back...However, after it dried, several gold plating areas apear to be 'broken' which you will certainly feel that...those platings are worn and about to fall off when you touch it the next time.

I hate uneven colours....so it is now in silver ...

before showering it, I make a blow, it has very thick sound...and quite a lot resistence....playing the altissimo....never expect it is such an altissimo freidnly horn.....this really surprises me.

besides, I took the sax apart and changes some corks and felts....it has a very amazing system of construction....I never had this feeling when I took my Mark VI and the Super alto apart.....all the keys are made such reasonably.....the painful bit is I left the RH E & F key to the last to put onto the sax......which I almost got mad....

wondering what kind of resonator will be a good option? I read that the Maestro star design reduces resistence.....could that be good?

also wondering how much significance in the different between the model of necks.

Regards
Peter

I would stay with the same kind of resonators it has for it's original sound and feel to it. Anything can change slightly due to different material and different texture of the resonator. I dont know anything about the buscher necks so good luck! Also, love that you play a adolph sax Bari. I'd love to acquire an alto one.. man...
