Big B Alto – Super Sweet and Responsive
This is a nice Buescher “Big B” Aristocrat alto saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 328813. If you are looking for an American vintage alto with a crisp feel and a sweet sound this Buescher is going to be a great choice. The sax shows off a pretty and dark original lacquer finish. The body tube, bell and bow are all in nice condition as is the original neck. The neck was pulled down in the past but was later brought back up to its true position. There is some history of past re-solder work on some of the lower key guard feet. The bow cap and bell flare are both in excellent condition. This Buescher does show case the original gold plated springs, amber roller and it even has the Buescher snap resonators. 
The Big B's are a great choice if you are looking for a medium warm playing horn with an ultra sweet sonic character. This Big B in particular is no exception. It plays with fast response to air flow and has a beautiful singing quality to the way it projects. This alto is currently in the Saxquest shop being professionally set-up on its current set of pads. The pads are in great shape and have plenty of life left in them. Saxquest's pro set-up will include a dissemble and clean up of the saxophone. Our tech will then replace out needed materials and give the sax a thorough regulation.
Do not miss out on a classic American vintage alto sax.
