Big B Alto – Fully Restored
This is a very sweet playing Buescher Big B alto saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 312298. The alto was recently overhauled in our shop and is now in perfect playing condition with all new pads and key materials. These saxophones are an absolute blast to play. While they are very free blowing by modern standards they do tend to play with a sweeter core sound in comparison to the Conn saxophones of the same period. 
 
The body of this saxophone shows off a nice original lacquer lacquer with a fair amount of finish wear. While it shows history of plenty of past play time it does not show any evidence of having received major repair or trauma in the past. All of the original key work and key guards are present and in good shape. There is no history of past re-solders anywhere around the key guards. The bow cap is in perfect condition. This saxophone does feature the original amber rollers on the table keys. 
 
This saxophone was recently overhauled in our shop. The Saxquest overhaul included a complete dissemble and cleaning before it was set up with a new set of Valentino premium leather pads, new corks and new felts. The work was done with the use of the original set of Buescher snap resonators. This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with the Saxquest overhaul and a brand new Protec XL contoured hard case.
