My Mk 6 didn't get stolen but Ive often wondered what would get the tone and be a faster /slicker horn in the palms and low alt?
Sometimes I actually prefer the Aristo to the VI anyway.
"Faster and slicker in the palm keys?" Nothing I can think of would be slicker than the VI, but the Bueschers are fine in the keywork also.
You don't sound very optimistic of finding them.If my VI's were stolen I wouldn't need another horn--I'd be spending the rest of my days hunting down the cur that took them.
I guess we're getting a bit off-topic here, now that Keith has found the horn he wanted, but to be honest I don't find the pinky table on the Buescher to be a problem. It's a bit different layout than the VI so it takes a moment to adjust, but once I've done that it seems to work fine. Which is not to say I find it easy to negotiate quickly on the bell tones with either sax. The low C, B, Bb definitely speak easier on the Buescher than the VI so maybe that makes up for any slight difference in the pinky keys. But I just haven't noticed a problem there.The sound of the Buescher Serie 1 is really pleasant, a kind of a mix between Conn and Selmer but...
can you cope with the pinky table? I find it hard to play no comparison to a MK 6 or how do you see that?
