Vintage Big B Bari With Case
This is an original lacquer vintage Buescher Big B baritone saxophone, serial number 318273. If you are sax player on the go and are in need of good gig worthy bari this Big B is perfect. The original lacquer finish is sporting a nice dark honey tint which is complemented by the clean engraving. Like many vintage baritones this one does show an active playing life and has some history of dent and solder repair. There is some past dent work around the body as well as re-solders around the lower key guard feet and a solder repair around the bell to body brace.  The bell, bow and bow cap are all in very good condition. Its bow cap has never been pushed in and the outer bell flare has never been pulled down. This saxophone comes with a non original later vintage Bundy baritone neck. 
This saxophone looks like it was more recently serviced in another shop and re-padded with a nice set of leather pads with most of the Buescher metal Snap resonators. The pads are in nice shape and have plenty of life left in them. The saxophone is also awaiting a professional service from our shop and will soon be in perfect playing condition. 
The Buescher Big B bari plays with a quick and easy response to air flow and has a massive sound. While the sound is on the warmer side it also has an open quality and is very powerful. Projection is incredible on this instrument. The powerful sound on these baris makes them ideal for a horn section work in soul, blues and jazz bands. If you are looking for a killin bari and are on a budget this Big B is going to be hard to pass up.
