Priced lower for quick sale as-is, because I have too many horns that need overhauls at present, this is a super-rare silver plated Buescher Top Hat alto, with an unusually late serial for a silver one. This horn has lacquer sprayed over the silver to preserve the shine, so that will need to be removed (easy to do) if you want to polish it when it is repadded. This horn has had the neck angle re-adjusted after a minor pull down, and a minor crease was removed from the bell flare. Now all is set right and it is ready for fresh pads and a new owner. It is a very nice example, with nearly 100% of the original silver intact, beautiful engraving, no resolders, snaps and springs intact, original case, original mouthpiece and ligature. If you want one of these that is already overhauled, I have another silver one available right now that plays great.
These are very responsive altos and also easy to play. The sound is rich and medium between bright and dark, with plenty of power when you want it, but also with the ability to play beautifully and right in tune on lyrical passages. These work equally well for classical sax or for more commercial settings. The key work is fast and comfortable, as long as you are willing to teach your pinky some new tricks– which is well worth it for the sound.
