Awesome Buescher THC Tenor – Fully Overhauled by Ben Reece
This is an outstanding Buescher 400 Top Hat and Cane tenor sax in original lacquer, serial number 330729. At the time of its production the 400 was Buescher's top of the line pro horn. With a great vintage feel and humongous sound it is easy to see why they were so proud of it. This particular tenor was just freshly overhauled in the Saxquest shop by Buescher specialist Ben Reece. It now features all new premium leather pads with the original Buescher snap resonators. The corks and felts are also all fresh. This saxophone also features the majority of the original Norton gold plated springs as well as the original amber key rollers. While it is not the prettiest horn the body tube, bell, bow and bell flare are all in excellent condition and show no history of major repair. The original neck on the saxophone is also in premium condition. 
The Buescher 400 is an extremely lush horn with a very rich quality. While it is a powerful player it also has a sweeter quality to its core sound when directly compared to the slightly more punchy Conn M series. Its fabulous sound, projection and power make it a ideal player for the straight ahead jazz, big band and R&B/Rock saxophonist. This tenor is an excellent power house and thanks to Ben is perfectly dialed in. Do not miss out on a classic Buescher in the playing shape it was meant to be experienced in.
