1945 Vintage Buescher Aristocrat Big B Tenor Saxophone
Classic 1945 Buescher Aristocrat Big B tenor sax. This horn plays well from high F to low Bb. 20 to 30 percent of the original gold lacquer finish remains, with most of the lacquer wear on the feature area of the bell and the stack key cups. Some pads are new, but most are in fair condition. Whoever replaced the pads cut out the snaps and installed regular pads, but probably half of the pads are the Buescher Snap-In pads. This horn also features Buescher amber rollers, Norton screw-in springs and railroad track / ribbon keyguards. There are several small dents on this horn, mostly on the bow -- shown in pictures. None of these dents effect the playability of the sax. Case is in poor condition, but functional.
