This is a 1925 vintage Buescher True Tone series C Melody saxophone, serial number 190636. This saxophone has been completely restored by Saxquest's Josh Creekmore, and has been professionally set up for the modern player.


C Melody saxes were very popular in the early 20th century, but you don't see them in use much anymore. They do have their niche though, and are great in settings when the sax player needs to read off a vocal part or any other part in the key of C, without having to transpose. This example is in pristine original condition. The original silver plating is as close to 100% intact as it gets, with no wear to speak of, and no past dent work or repair. The instrument is physically perfect from top to bottom.


Repadded using premium firm leather pads and retaining the original Buescher snap-in metal domed resonators, this sax ships in perfect playing condition. It is a new set of blue needle springs, and is in perfect adjustment. This C Melody plays with a warm, sweeter tone, very lush and inviting. It is a very free blowing and resonant instrument, taking your air with no effort. This sax ships complete in its original case.
