Time to say a fond farewell to my Buffet 400 Alto, owned for the last 9 months. Selling as I have finally chosen to concentrate my playing efforts on my 1973 Buffet Super Dynaction.

No dents or dings whatsoever. Pads in excellent condition. Vintage matt finish enhanced by some light tarnishing patina, see photos. Playing absolutely perfectly.

Some reviews here: http://felixssaxophonecorner.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/saxophone-review-buffet-400-alto-sax.html
& here: http://felixssaxophonecorner.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/buffet-400-alto-follow-up-commentary.html

Comes in Buffet backpack style case, along with neck stopper, used original mouthpiece, ligature, and cap, and Buffet neck strap.

£520 cash collected (5 mins J20/M1 or J1/M6) or will courier in the UK for £22.00.
Any trial welcome.
Bank transfer please, if I'm posting.
5% of sale price to Pete's charity.

I have to add that I think this is a really sensible price David . I`ve seen some laughably priced Buffet-400 Altos on Gumtree and Fleabay in the past few months (none have sold of course) and wish you the best of luck selling this Horn which you prized so highly (and Tom still does) .. (BTW you haven`t got a scruffy dented 10M Tenor going cheap have you - LOL)

I know. Crazy prices for them in the USA for some reason too?
I guess this kind of difficult decision comes with the territory of searching out well regarded horns to test against each other. The SDA just suits me so well at present.

If I was looking for a new alto I'd buy this on looks alone. It's gorgeous - good luck with the sale :)

Let's not be silly now......

Colin's PM was regarding another matter.

The Buffet is still fully for sale BUT Ads is right, £450 is too cheap so back up to £495 and I'll wait it out!
