Vintage Original Silver Buescher True Tone Tipped Bell Soprano, 217769
This is a beautiful vintage Buescher True Tone tipped bell soprano sax, serial number 217769. The tipped bell True Tone sopranos were made in the late 1920's along side the standard straight soprano. But they are very rare and highly sought after in comparison. This soprano was recently overhauled and is quite the sight to behold, they just don't get much cleaner then this. Its body is in terrific original condition from top to bottom with no history of any major repair, it has seen zero re-solders. The soprano's set-up features all new premium leather pads, new felts and corks. It also showcases the the original Buescher snap resonators.
This soprano plays with a very positive free breathing response. It has a very sweet sonic character and a slightly brighter color. Projection and general flexibility on these Buescher sopranos is always fantastic.
These vintage tip bell soprano’s are a highly sought after rare vintage American instrument. We do not see these come around in this kind of condition very often. Don't miss out on a great player and collectors item.
