Custom Huge Brass Resonators

Check out this restoration of a Buescher True-Tone Bass Sax for a customer. It was in the WWS inventory and Mr Pearson fell in love with it. Honestly: I never took enough "before" photos to fully display the issues this sax had.

REBUILD: Aside from taking the whole sax apart to get out many many dents and address past repairs, the ultra special work on this sax was the HUGE Brass Resotech resonators that we installed. It was custom work.

How did it come out? "Perfect", according to Mr Pearson. Wow - huge tone; lots of air required.

It was a one of kind rebuild and I know that this sax will be used on a pro recording that I hope to feature here in the future.
