1950 Buescher Aristocrat III '140' Alto
- Year: 1950
- Make: Buescher
- Model: Aristocrat III, 140
- Status: For Sale
- Finish: Original Lacquer
- Serial Number: 333,2xx
Sultry Buescher sound that lots of people love on the affordable Aristo III! This is the little brother to the more famous Big B (Aristo II). These are light weight with a sound that is bigger than that illusion. A nice, vintage alto for under $1,000 - It won't last too long.
Serial #333,2xx dates the sax to about 1950. This sax is Original Finish. Pads are mostly older and original. It had 6 pads changed in the last year by a local seattle tech(who I know), and I think I'll have to add 1-4 more for this sale.
CASE: The original case is in great shape for its age!
SOUND: warmth, sultry, very very close to the Big B(series II), just add a bit more treble tones in the clearness of tone.
Although the pads are a little used, they will tune up nicely (included). So I'll go through the sax and give a great bill of health before it leaves.
One of the best bargain saxes!
