BUESCHER True Tone - Gold Plate (Serial Number: 211585) Back to model

Here is a breathtakingly beautiful Buescher True Tone tenor sax, serial number 211585. This gold plated horn has a unique finish you don't see often, and it is a marvel.

The sax has a satin-like matte gold finish on the body and bell, with burnished (shiny) gold plated keys, as well as in the engraving. The finish is over 97% intact, and has just minor scratching on the back of the body tube. Otherwise it is near perfect, showing no other major wear, even on the touch points.

The sound on this sax is as beautiful as the horn. It has a rich warm resonance, and plays slightly darker than your typical Buescher. It remains a very open playing instrument, and offers the player very little resistance. It has a sweet sound, and is a joy to play.
