This is a Buescher "Big B" Aristocrat alto sax made in 1949, in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
This is a terrific Buescher , one of the best we've ever played!!
It has been fully stripped, washed and professionally rebuilt with premium calf pads at a cost of £500.00. It plays like a new horn, super tight, slick action!!
Lovely condition in original gold lacquer - there is the usual light lacquer wear associated with a 70 year old horn - check out that super clean sharp engraving.
The Big B's are regarded as being the best of the Aristocrat Series famously used by Duke Ellington's Johnny Hodges!
It sounds amazing with that beautiful warm, sweet Buescher tone - very modern feel under the fingers, solid intonation and perfectly set up action!
Overall an amazing opportunity to own one of these highly regarded classics in great, solid condition!
Comes complete with super clean Hiscox (made in UK) shaped flight case and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!
BUY VINTAGE WITH CONFIDENCE!
