Buescher True Tone Alto
This is a vintage Buescher True Tone alto saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 209084. If you looking for a fun vintage alto to play or a project piece these True Tones are fantastic items. They play with a sweet and punchy free blowing sound. These altos were a big part of the early Jazz saxophone sound. This one in particular is one of the slightly later True Tones. It does show case the font F and the improved key work of the G# key in the left hand table key. These later models also tended to tune better as well. 
This one is in good shape and does not show any history of major past trauma. The body, neck, bell and bow cap are all in great shape. The original key guard bridge between back door Eb and the low B key guard has come un-soldered but could easily be re-soldered. This sax is currently playing decently through some leaks down to a low Bb. If you are planning on doing serious playing on this alto it will need a complete re-pad before it is in perfect playing condition. As our shop is very backed up right now we are offering this one in as is condition at a low bargin price.
