This is a 1949 Buescher “Big B” Aristocrat, named for the ornate engraving of a Big B on the bell. This sax was purchased new in '49, and was well played throughout it's life. The sax features that classic vintage lacquer darkening that just looks so good from across the band hall or stage. This horn is currently being sold AS-IS and does need a re-pad in order to sound it's best. It does currently play, but we do recommend some extra work to unlock it's full potential. Pads are in about 50%-75% good condition. If you do wish to purchase this saxophone with a full re-pad, please contact the shop directly.
