This is a Buescher Aristocrat Series 1 tenor saxophone, art deco engraving & the sought after "small" bell model, made in 1937 in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
These small bell Bueschers are absolutely terrific, great tuning, pretty modern keywork and one of the most glorious fat, warm sounds ever made! Many famous players have sported this model - check out Sonny Rollins during the mid 1960s using a small bell Buescher (the model directly after this, different engraving and key guards but otherwise the same). Also check out Iceland's sax giant player Oskar Gudjonnson an avid Buescher player.
A very cool looking horn with little, no lacquer remaining yielding a really authentic patina - very vintage vibe! It has had a full custom restoration, rebuild & repad costing £500 - needless to say it plays amazingly well.
Comes complete with a brand new Gator shaped flight case and of course our famous 12 month warranty!
BUY VINTAGE WITH CONFIDENCE!
