The Buescher Aristocrat “Big B” Alto Saxophone

For sale The Buescher Aristocrat “Big B” professional alto saxophone, made in 1948. The saxophone is in excellent condition. All original, lacquer, pads, snap-on resonators and gold plated Norton springs intact. Comes with the original mouthpiece, case, neck, end plug, ligature and accessories. I just treated the pads with MusicMedic Pad Juice and it plays as is effortlessly from top to bottom with quiet action. It has smooth, focused sound and excellent intonation. I’m selling it because I prefer my The Martin Alto (Comm III), but if I did more classical work I would keep it definitely.
I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also. Payment by PayPal (buyer pays fees) or pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Ask for the price. Pictures

Otto Link STM Florida (USA) 9 Refaced by “Phil-Tone”

For sale Otto Link STM Florida (USA) 9, just cleaned and corrected a little by Phil Engleman “Phil-Tone” (150€ value). It is still original 9 tip opening and has big sound. Despite big tip opening it is easy to play from top to bottom with a lot of projection and great altissimo. This one plays brighter than my Florida no USA 8*. Excellent for jazz, blues, rock, big band. Comes without ligature & cap. Worldwide shipping from Zagreb (EU). Payment by bank transfer or PayPal (buyer pays fees). Ask for the price. Pictures
