    Default Buescher silver top hat tenor sax fs

    Buescher top hat,original silverplate,just overhauled by Aaron Barnard for $1400...Has the snap ins but not sure about the Norton springs...looks like some newer springs...Has some surface scratches here and there but all the silver is there and the horn is stunning!...Comes in a Custom made case...has the original neck...Serial # 354XXX B11...I do not play Bueschers but I must say this horn sounds as big as any Conn or King I ever had in my hands...Asking $5495 on Facebook and here and if you have an offer please PM me...The only trades I would consider are VI or SBA tenors,pearled Silversonic altos and tenors or some sopranos...ships from Bethlehem,Pa. USA...tiny ding on bell lip!

    Drop dead gorgeous, and Barnard knows Bueschers better than anyone.

    This is pretty much IT for the total package. Wow. Good luck with the sale.

    I was asked about the springs so I contacted Aaron...this is the reply...

    Hi Pete,
    Most of the springs were Nortons. I replaced a couple with modern replacements. All now have the threaded bushing in the posts to hold the springs. The only real issue is the plating has come off of most of the springs at this point.
    Glad you like the horn. It is a great player!

    That's a rare beauty. My TH&C is not only my favorite player among my tenors new and vintage, but has that marvelous Buescher sound. It's my Holy Grail. Good luck with the sale.

    I think saxmanpete needs a new forum title. Something like "Chief Purveyor of Horn Porn"!

    What a gorgeous horn. I love silver saxes and this is one of the most beautiful I've seen. I sure wish I had the money for this but if I did, my wife would kill me before another heart attack could get a chance.
