Vintage Harwood Professional Silver Tenor Saxophone #152587
Early True-tone Buescher Stencil!
This is a Harwood Professional silver-plated low-pitch tenor saxophone with the serial number #152587; this saxophone is a Buescher True-Tone stencil. Being an early stencil, you will find that this tenor features an alternate G# trill key between F and E tone holes as well as the option or a 'back door Eb' trill key. This tenor’s Eb key has been corked shut to alleviate extra spring tension.
The silver on this saxophone has some wear on palm keys exposing brass. There has been a patch added on both sides of the neck, which has also been pulled down. The bow of the sax has been impacted in the past as well. The key guards have survived quite well with no serious indentations in these areas from impact, although the bell brace has been pushed in. This sax does not feature a front F mechanism but has fingerings from Low Bb up to Palm F.
