HELP, I Want One!

Tremendous condition Buescher 400 'Top Hat & Cane' engraved tenor sax, serial number 297416. This tenor was relacquered a number of years ago, and the job is the best I've ever seen. If you've been on the hunt for an affordable top shelf Buescher 400, this is the deal to be had.


As you can see in the photos, the newer lacquer is just about flawless, with no real wear to speak of. There are no signs of past damages or repairs anywhere on the horn and it is perfect from top to bottom. Even better, the relacquering involved little to no buffing; as you can see in the engraving, even the smallest detail remains crisp and clear. The sax retains all of its original metal snap-in resonators, but the springs have been replaced, now fitted with stainless steel springs.


The pads were last changed during the relacquering 30 or 40 years ago, and while the sax wasn't played much since, the pads have dried out and gotten to the point to be replaced again. We are currently offering the sax as-is at a super low price, but if you'd like us to do the repad, just select from the option above. We're offering our full pro repad at a greatly reduced price, and would include all new pads/corks/felts (keeping original resonators), and precise regulation/set up. Would put the sax back in perfect playing shape. If you have your own preferred tech, grab the horn as-is and be ahead of the game.


Currently playing through some leaks, you can still get an idea as to the presence this tenor is capable of. I've never played a 400 TH&C that didn't floor me. Great opportunity to pick one up on a budget. This tenor does ship in a sturdy hard case.
