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

The Martin Alto (Committee III) Saxophone (2)

For sale The Martin Alto (Committee III) saxophone, serial no. 187xxx (1954). This saxophone is fully restored a few years ago at Roberto Buttus (Italy) workshop, original lacquer (I think) still here at about 60% and it plays smoothly from top to bottom and gig ready. It has Reso-Tech resonators, original case, end plug and matching serial on body and neck, no mouthpiece. There are a few resolders, two on low b, b flat key guard post and one on low c# post (very common on those Martins) and thumb hook base. There is also small dent on bow guard but I think the bow tube is not affected (pics). It has full, round and medium dark sound and it is loud horn due to Reso-Tech resonators.
I prefer to sell it inside EU (no customs for EU countries), but would consider worldwide shipping also. The horn is available for local pickup/cash in Zagreb (HR). Payment by bank transfer (inside EU) or PayPal (buyer pays fees). Ask for the price. Pictures
