HELP, I Want One!

A Post-War Class Act

This is a very nice vintage Buescher 400 “Top Hat and Cane” engraved tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 306047. Arguably the best jazz tenor Buescher ever made, the TH&C horns play with the same resonance and warmth of their Aristocrat line, but have a bigger bell and a mechanism that allows for more venting with a resulting bigger, more robust sound.

This sax still shows off its original lacquer which is around 80%+ intact. The original factory engraving remains pristine. The horn shows evidence of past dent work in the bottom bow and on the neck (original, with underslung octave key), but all of the work is rather minor. No re-solder repairs are evident.

This tenor arrived to us on a recent overhaul with brown leather pads. It still has most of the original gold plated Norton springs and all of the original Buescher snap-in metal resonators, so we'll reuse all that hardware and just give the horn a professional SQ Repair Shop setup to bring it to perfection. Once complete, this horn will ship in perfect adjustment, and backed by our full year mechanical warranty. All work is included in the price. Grab it before it's gone, ships in vintage wood hard case.
