Vintage Buescher Big B
 
This is a very nice original lacquer Buescher Big B Alto, Serial #324213. The Big B shows off a lovely original lacquer finish. Its dark honey tint is in nice condition showing some modest play wear for a horn of its vintage. The original Buescher Big “B” engraving is still crisp and well defined across the bell area. Its body tube, bow and bow cap are all in outstanding condition. The bow cap has never been pushed in or abused in the past. The bell flare is also super clean and does not show history of any pull downs. The sax does show off the original amber key rollers on the table keys. 
 
The alto was just freshly overhauled in the Saxquest shop by Josh Creekmore. It features a new set of Valentino premium pads with the use of the original snap resonators. All of the corks and felts are also brand new. Josh did a superb job on precise regulation and key fitting and the saxophone is now in perfect playing condition. There were a few older re-solders that were cleaned up during the overhaul. Located on the top key guard foot of low Eb and the original marching lyre mount. The octave key saddle on the original neck was also repaired. 
 
This is an ultra responsive instrument. It takes the air in quick and easy and plays with a warm sonic character. In comparison to vintage Conn saxophones these Buescher's have a much sweeter and slightly more focused quality to the way they sound and respond. 
 
This saxophone ships in perfect playing condition with a case and a fresh Saxquest overhaul!
