Beautiful original lacquer, original pads Buescher Super 400 alto ‘Top Hat & Cane’ model. This is the most deluxe saxophone that Buescher produced, with deluxe engraving, fast keywork, and Buescher’s signature top quality intonation. Don’t miss the little details that take these horns from good to great, like the silver “tone ring” under the bell lip, the underslung octave key, and the raised Buescher logo in the engraving. If you have been looking for an alto that has the sweet, dynamic, moderately-focused Buescher tone, and that looks beautiful, and is in uncommonly good original condition, look no further.
This alto has no resolders, no dents, and only light play wear on the original lacquer. It has the original case in good condition. The neck is in very good condition. Even on the original pads, this alto still plays surprisingly well. It has the snaps and spuds intact, as well as the gold plated Norton springs. Everything you look for in a top quality Buescher is here. Just get the pads replaced by the repair shop of your choice, and you will have an alto that sounds bigger, sweeter, and more complex than any of the modern alto options, that tunes excellently, and that looks gorgeous. These are built extremely well, and they stay in adjustment very well down the road. The Buescher Top Hat and Cane altos are the creme de la creme of Buescher altos, and they are quite hard to find in this sort of condition.
