Buescher Alto - Ready To Play!
Here we have a very sweet Buescher Aristocrat 140 alto saxophone with the serial number 333886. This version of the Aristocrat succeeded the "Big B" model of the WWII and post war era. Features of this model include original amber rollers, gold plated Norton springs, and "railroad style" bell key guards, front F mechanism. The sax shows the history of an active playing history. It has seen some history of past repair. The lacquer on this sax is in great condition, original with some typical wear around the neck strap ring, bow, and palm key touches. The horn is now in perfect playing condition and was just restored in our shop by Hunter Murray. The overhaul features a set-up with new premium leather pads, metal domed resonators and all new corks and felts.
This Buescher plays with an even, light, free-blowing character making clean projection in the lower stack easily executable. The upper end of this horn has a strong core with a particularly warm and pure timbre to it. The light, smooth-flowing action and fast response combination of this saxophone makes it a fantastic deal for the professional player, either as a main or back-up horn this sax will be a key member of anyone's arsenal.
