    Default Sizes of Buescher Snap on Resos

    If anyone owns a Buescher alto or tenor, I need to know the diameter in millimeters of the original snap on resos for the low B and Bb bell keys. Thanks.

    On a 294xxx Aristocrat, 19.1 mm diameter resos for both the bell B and Bb ....

    Can't tell you about the altos but probably they're the same.

    The low Bb and B snap-in resos on my #320XXX Big B 140 alto look to measure about 19mm each. I can't get my calipers in there because of keyguards so I had to eyeball it. DAVE

    Thanks Dave that's what I needed to know---whether the alto and tenor had the same size snap on resonators in the larger keys. Below is a photo of a resonator from a Buescher tenor I am currently working on. Your "eyeball" measurement was right on. Thanks again.
