Buescher True-tone alto(s)


Enfield, North London
Hello again
I've decided that things are getting a bit out of hand here and I could do with selling an alto or two.
I thought I'd offer them here to anyone who is interested.

Both are silver plated and have that typical Buescher sound.

First is from 1926, series III with front F. Several pads were recently replaced, in very nice tidy condition.
Silver plate is excellent. Two very small dings at the bottom of the bow and a blemish up near the palm keys.
Low pitch, number 202916.
Very good example, comes with later rectangular case which is in good serviceable condition.

Next up is a 1925 low pitch True-tone, number 188774. No front F.
I've recently rebuilt this saxophone and replaced all the pads and springs where neccessary.
The matte silver plate is in great condition, the keywork and engraved area on the bell are in bright silver. This one also has a gold bell-wash.
I haven't found a single ding anywhere, but I had to remove the bent bottom C key guard, straighten it and re-fix.
Comes with it's Buescher case, lyre, silver plated end-plug, ligature and mouthpiece cap.

So, if you're interested please let me know.
I'd rather not have to send these horns in the mail, and I also feel you'd need to come and try them before buying anyway. I'm in North London, but could meet?

It seems I can't post attachments, so send me a PM and I'll send pictures to your e-mail address.

Asking price £550 each.
£50 donation for each sold.
