  • Eligibility to post classifieds

    The Yardsale is not intended for use by people joining the forum purely to sell an item, so members must have at least 40 posts to be eligible. However new members may post if they either:

    • upgraded their account with an annual (not monthly) subscription. This is for access to sell without needing the 40 posts and the contribution after a successful sale still applies.
    • or pay the 5% contribution on the initial listing price up front (non refundable) then a listing will be allowed.

Buescher Truetone Soprano

I cannot justify having my Buescher Soprano hanging around so it is for sale - I have to concentrate on my alto and maybe tenor playing. It is a silver plated model, serial number 197018. Excellent condition. My teacher Pete Canter has heard me play it (perhaps he will contribute to this thread...?) and noted that it has a good sound and plays in tune top to bottom with no effort - in fact I was surprised when I bought it that I could play it top to bottom without that strangled duck sound!

It comes in a fully functioning case with handle and clasps in good condition.

One possibly unique feature is the left hand palm key risers - they (according to Griff who gave it a check over) appear to be hand made and exactly shaped to fit, so the horn has a beautiful customised look.

They keywork is very quick and quiet - all in all I am not aware of any bad points.

A lovely horn and I would expect around the £800 mark. I think Pete Thomas had one or two of these and sold them a while ago for £750-800? I donate 5%.

http://www.shwoodwind.co.uk/Reviews/Saxes/Sop/Buescher_TrueTone_soprano.htm for review - note this review was in 2004 and things have gone up a bit since then, and I judge this horn to be a top notch specimen. I would certainly consider some kind of money back if not satisfied arrangement. I live in Exeter and please contact me if you want a play before making up your mind. I am on holiday 22nd July - 29th July but leave a post and I will get back to you.

As I said previously in another thread, this horn sounds good and plays in tune so is well worth a blow if anyone is interested. Pete
