Vintage Buescher Aristocrat
This is a vintage Buescher 156 Aristocrat tenor saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 344447. The tenor has a great look and is a fabulous player. It takes the air in quick and easy while producing a powerful sound with a brilliant color. This is a great horn for any serious tenor player in need of something with punch and reliability while keeping the budget very reasonable. 
 
The body of this saxophone shows a very pretty 85% original lacquer finish. There is some history of past repair around the bottom bow of the horn. Its neck has also been slightly pulled down in the past but was more recently brought back up to its true position. The Aristocrat showcase the original key work, gold plated spring as well as the original amber rollers. 
 
This tenor was recently professionally overhauled Mike Filice from Ontario and is a superb player. It is now in perfect playing condition with a new set of premium leather pads with utilization of all the original Buescher snap resonators. We will give the horn a good play test before shipping to ensure that it goes out playing perfectly.
