1924 Vintage Buescher True Tone curved soprano sax in original silver plate, serial number 168971. I've personally always found the vintage curved sopranos to be a real hoot to play, and this one won't let you down either.

 

If you are wanting that “vintage” soprano sax but need something that's not a pain to play, this sax is definitely worth a look. It does feature keywork to high F and feels very comfortable under your fingers. It is physically in exquisite condition with no dents or dings, no resolders, and no previous repairs. While the silver plating is tarnished currently, it just needs a fresh polishing and it will shine up like new.

 

This soprano came to us on older pads, and we are currently offering it “as is” with the option to have us restore it. If you opt to have us do the work, the price includes full disassembly and cleaning/polishing, all new pads, corks, and felts, and a thorough regulation. The sax does still have the original Buescher snap-in metal resonators, so those will be retained.

 

Unfortunately as it sits, this horn is not playing well on the older pads, but if you have a tech you'd like to do the work, or if you want us to restore it, you'll end up with a quality soprano that will most certainly please. I've played plenty of curved Bueschers from this era, and I expect nothing less than a sweet and beautifully voiced horn. Sax does ship in its original case, with working latches and a replacement handle.
