Great Budget Pro Players Horn
This is a vintage Buescher “Super 400” alto saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 4321031. The 400 is a go to favorite of the Saxquest staff for a budget gig horn. This one in particular has all the potential to be a real burner once it receives some TLC. The alto does showcase the original orange rollers and neck with under-slung octave key. Physically the sax is in fairly straight condition top to bottom. There is currently a few small dings along the instrument but it does not look like it has ever seen major body repair or damage. The original neck is also with the saxophone. It does show a ding above the receiver on one side. 
 
As it sits it is playing just a little bit through a lot of leaks. It will need a complete overhaul before it is ready for any serious playing. If you have a favorite tech or are looking for a project you can get into this sax at a great price. 
 
We are currently selling this saxophone with 3 options. 
1. In total “As Is” condition as it currently sits with old pads – in this condition the instrument will need a complete overhaul before it is ready for serious playing.
2. Basic Student Overhaul – We will take the sax and do a student level overhaul on it, clean, remove all dings and completely replace all pads and materials and include basic regulation of the key work.
3. Saxquest Pro Overhaul – We will give the sax our highly thorough and precise overhaul. It includes a cleaning, removing of any small dings and replacement of everything with premium leather pads, corks, felts and resonators and a top notch regulation of all the keys. This is the same level job that is performed on all of our high end professional saxophones.
