Sweet Free Blowing Bari – Perfect Budget Bari Sax

This is a very sweet playing vintage Buescher 400 original lacquer baritone sax, serial number 407669. These 400 model baritones are fantastic players. This one in particular takes the air in smooth and easy and has a rich and colorful response. It is a perfect bari if you are looking for a horn to produce a lot of volume and power. This saxophone does play on the brighter side of things.


The last owner of this saxophone played it regularly and kept it professionally serviced over the years. As with any great playing bari worth its salt there is a history of repair on the bari. A number of the posts have been repaired in the past and some of the key guard feet have also been re-soldered. All of the work was done extremely well in a pro shop. The body currently shows a very clean body tube, bow and bell. Its original neck is also in very nice condition.


The previous owner had it set-up on leather pads with the original Buescher snap resonators. The pads are in all in great shape and have a ton of life left in them. We will also go through the horn before it ships to make sure all the pads are still sealing up tight. If you are looking for a real work horse baritone these Buescher 400's are hard to beat. This saxophone ships with a newer contoured case in excellent condition.
