This is a beautiful original vintage Buescher True Tone Bb Soprano saxophone. It has almost all of its original gold plate finish intact. (Real gold, not gold lacquer.) Gold is a durable and protective finish, and with a gentle hand polish, this soprano can look virtually brand new again! It’s sold needing an overhaul, and it would be ideal if you want your own repair shop to work on it anyway, or if you’re a repair person who would like a very satisfying overhaul to do. The overhaul adds a lot of value in this case, so you shouldn’t lose money on the prospect either. There are no dents or dings, and I don’t see any evidence of past repairs either, which is remarkable. You’ll probably need to spend a few bucks on new rollers, which can be ordered here. This soprano is NICE!
The great thing about True Tone sopranos, is that they tune really well, even with many modern mouthpieces, and the tone is round, velvety warm, and complex. Bottom line is that people will actually enjoy listening to the tone of this soprano, where many other sopranos tend to be too bright and reedy (I’m looking at you, Selmer.)
Only one available!
