Buescher True Tone Alto 1925
This is an original silver plated Buescher True Tone alto sax, serial #181273. These True Tones were a huge part of the early Jazz and Big Band sound. This one was manufactured in 1925. It show cases the original silver plate finish and trill G# key. This is one of the earlier models with a pearl touch G# key in the left hand cluster. 
 
It looks like it has been some time since anyone has done any repair or general regulation work on this alto. Right now it is playing through some leaks down to a low D. If you put a bunch of air you can honk out the Bb. If you are just looking to have a cool 1920's alto to mess around with or are looking for a home project this could be a very nice buy. The body of the alto is in very decent condition and it does not show history of any major repair. Because of the older pads on the horn it would ultimately need an overhaul before it is in perfect playing condition. 
 
The alto ships in as is condition with the original Buescher box case and end plug.
