...JUST IN!...

SPECS: small or narrow bell design, version 1 of the Aristocrat series 1. The engraving is very crisp on this sax. The original-ness of the lacquer would trick the untrained eye. The quality is really good, but the color is more reminiscent of a later era, perhaps the 1950s(?).

PADS: Good pads, no longer with snaps. resonators have increased from original size to a dome metal. Expect even more tone boost and an increase in Buescher power. The repair work was done elsewhere by a local tech, who I think did the full repad.

CASE: Yes, ... Yamaha case.

BONUS, Mouthpiece: Brilhart Level Air, metal #3. With original ligature and cap! (value add of $50-180)
