This is a Buescher TrueTone series II gold plated alto sax made in 1924, in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
It has had a full custom restoration - brand new black "roo" pads with solid brass star resonators (probably the most expensive set you can get!), new felts, corks, set up ... costing £600!
Finished in bright gold plate (this would have been a special order from the factory and as such made by the most skilled craftsmen) - we've seen a couple in frosted gold plate but never in this finish - very, very rare and looks really classy - certainly not over the top like some modern gold plate which can look a bit "blingy"!
Tone wise it plays with great versatility - warm, dark, strong, punchy, soft - this one does it all and could easily be at home in the jazz setting as a classical recital! Obviously it is an old sax, has been played and has some wear here and there, minor blemishes and so on but blows great and feels like new!
Comes complete with a brand new Hiscox Pro II, made in Uk, shaped flight case (costs £165.00) and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!

*REFURBISHED - a refurbished instrument has (at the very least) been stripped, washed, cleaned, polished, professionally rebuilt and set up to play perfectly. Worn corks, felts and pads will have been replaced, spring tensions balanced, key heights adjusted etc. Some instruments will have been completely overhauled using all new pads - any specialist work or customization will be included in the instrument description.
ALL refurbished instruments come with a full 12 month warranty!
