Newer Pads & Ships with Fresh Adjustment

This is a late vintage Buescher Aristocrat alto sax, serial number 471961. This is a decent student level sax for new players on a budget. It has good, newer pads and is in solid physical condition.


All of the scratching and wear you see in the photos is all cosmetic. While much of the name is worn off the bell, it does appear that the sax is original lacquer. By this time, Buescher was just stamping the name on the bell rather than engraving it, and it looks like it has just worn off with time. There are a couple minor previous repairs; the low Eb keyguard has been resoldered and there's some minor past dent work on the bell flare and bottom bow, but nothing that affects the play of the horn. Pads are still in great shape with years of life ahead of them, and the sax is currently in our repair shop in line for an adjustment, where we'll look it over to make sure it is good before it ships.


You'd be hard pressed to find a quality, up-and-playing sax for a lower price. If you've got a beginner on your hands and need a decent horn, you can't go wrong with this one. Ships in a good hard case.
