Re: Buescher from 1962
What model is your Buescher? Some models of that vintage are highly sought after - tell your son - as THE rock 'n' roll horn. A lot of times when a sax has been around a long time it will need a bit of repair to the keywork. Rods can become loose, springs can be disconnected or broken and etc. The trick is to find a qualified sax technician in your area. You might want to pose a new question here on that subject - to see if anyone knows somebody. Incidently a full set of pads should be around $200 these days, or $300 with all new felts and corks. - - - - Good Luck.
