Here's a cool old 1927 vintage Buescher True Tone soprano saxophone in Bb, serial number 228419. This soprano was relacquered a long time ago but looks good enough to pass as original. The only way I know it's not is that Buescher wasn't offering lacquer as an option in 1927! The sax looks great outside of some cosmetic wear to the lacquer, and has good pads.

 

This soprano is in tremendous shape. As seen in the photos, there is a fair amount of lacquer wear on the horn, especially on the backside of the body tube, but there are no dents, resolders, or evident previous repairs. The relacquering was done so well that the engraving and stamping is flawless. Pads are in good shape, with brown plastic resonators, and the sax is playing well up and down the range of the instrument.

 

This soprano plays with a darker tone, and good response. Its middle and lower register play especially vibrant. If you are a fan of these vintage American made horns, you will not be disappointed. Goes out in its original hard case.
