Includes Saxquest Overhaul
This is a late vintage Buescher Aristocrat alto saxophone in gold lacquer, serial #400603. The S-33 is a great horn for the serious student. 
 
This particular unit was produced in 1964, one year after the Selmer buyout. It has received a full mechanical overhaul adhering to Saxquest's strict standards for excellence for mechanical precision and tightly sealing pads. All toneholes and padcups are level, all keywork without lost motion. The horn retains its original blued-steel springs which are as beautiful and snappy as when they left the factory 54 years ago. The original riveted tan-leather pads have been replaced with Valentino Premium brown-leather pads specially treated with a super hydrophobic coating that repels water and oils. In place of rivets, seamless domed metal resonators with greater surface area than Buescher Snap-on resonators have been installed. The setup features synthetic corks and felts throughout.
 
This alto has a big sound and takes the air in fast and easy. The precise set-up has left the key work feeling smooth and easy to get around on. The S-33 Aristocrat is an ideal choice as a back up for the pro sax player. Their sturdy build and reliability also make them a top shelf choice for a student or for use on the marching field. 
 
The Buescher ships out in perfect playing condition with a box hard case.
