BUESCHER True Tone - Matte Gold Plate (Serial Number: 159726) Back to model

Here's a very nice example of a 1920's vinntage Gold Plate Buescher sopranino saxophone. Buescher sopraninos of this later vintage have an interesting table key configuration as the G# key is activated by the low B key. Thus when you first glance at the table mechanism, it appears that the G# key is missing. Its actually a very efficient mechanism.

This particular sopranino is part of the Saxquest Museum collection of vintage saxophones. Its in near mint original gold plate. One of the nicest examples we've seen. It was fully restored by Chris Watrous at Saxquest using white kid leather pads from Ed Meyer and the original gold plated Buescher snap-on resonators.

Its hard to believe that Buescher was able to make a very sweet sounding sopranino with decent intonation back in the 1920's. But they did it with this one. Its a remarkable player and a very fun sax to play.
