Buescher 1920 ‘True Tone’ Eb Baritone, Silver Plate #96k

$1,799.00 FOR SALE/RENT - Here's another early TT model ser.#96k, in excellent 93% silver plate, light Goldwash bell (faded). Keyed to high Eb, thus no Front F key, no spit value either on this era, these old saxes are known for their woody tone. It's a buescher thing. If you want true vintage 20's (or earlier) tone, you have to get a buescher or conn. This sax did not have snap in pads. This frees up the new owner to customize the resos to your liking without being concerned about damaging the original body. CURRENT PADS: are newer with plastic resos. The neck looks ok too. Some resolders on the neck joints are present, the most silver wear is on the upper U-joint. Good, hard case.

Keilwerth 1959 ‘H&A Selmer-Bundy’ Eb Baritone, #35k

$1989.00 - General Description: a great Bb Bari, with good ergos, some past damage wounds, missing pants guard. A Great sax to PLAY without worry on collector issues)
A vintage 1958-60 original lacquer body with lacquer keys and the solid sheet keyguards and plastic pants guard(missing) (keilwerth indicators). Ser. #35K dates it to about 1959. Some dings/dents; I'll replace a few lost screws to the bell guards, also had bell-to-body brace dented in (we have fixed many of these, so the sax will recover, however some scars may remain). It has fresh tan pads with Seamless domed, metal Pisoni resonators.
SOUND: mid core bark and evenness; not completely resonant like a Buescher/Martin, but not as timid either.
CASE: It arrived in an old case in fair/poor shape; I expect to be looking into a New case. ($190-250, may affect price)

Buescher 1977 ‘Bundy – Selmer USA’ Eb Baritone, Low Bb #690,xxx

RENTAL/Available - This bari is from the good 70s era, still in the student line but great sound for the price. Serial #690xxx. lacquer body, nickel keys. It's basically the end of the Buescher line design with the Selmer takeover logo so it has that big bell like the "Buescher 400". Baritones always get beat up. This beast got a lot of dings and dents (mostly in the bell and bottom) and I will do my best to make them only minor ones. There will be a few that I can't reach on the neck and one medium on on the SelmerBundy690k9.jpg (3435958 bytes)SelmerBundy690k8.jpg (3562744 bytes) backside. Comes with neck and hard case--case in fair-to-poor condition.
I might end up putting some duct-tape reinforcement on the case. sorry, no mpc. I hope to keep this at $900 but i will have to report back and adjust price as necessary after the tuneups.
