Buescher Big B Tenor – Original Lacquer
Here we have a super sweet playing Buescher Aristocrat Big B tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 326000. A tenor like this one is an ideal for the on the go pro who is looking for a solid gig horn. This horn takes the air in easy and plays with a smooth free blowing response. It showcases and crisp medium warm sound with crystal clear projection. A Big B is a great sax for use in straight ahead jazz as well as funk, blues and louder contemporary settings. 
 
The pictures of this saxophone tell its story the best. It is in solid physical condition showing the history of many past performances. Looking over the saxophone very carefully I can see no signs it ever received major dent work or re-solders in the past. The body tube, tone holes, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great shape. This saxophone does have all of the original Buescher snap resonators as well as its gold plated springs. The tenor is with the original Buescher neck. It was slightly pulled down and later corrected. 
 
The last owner of this saxophone kept it regularly serviced by their local tech. It is currently still playing up a storm on older leather pads and gray felt materials. In order to keep the horn at a lower price we are not going to do a set up to this sax in our shop and are selling it in as is condition. We will give it a good play test in our shop and post a video soon.
 
This sax ships with a nice shaped hard case.
