*ON HOLD* 1947 Buescher 400 Top Hat & Cane Tenor Saxophone
Amazing condition Buescher 400 TH&C Top Hat & Cane Tenor Saxophone, fully overhauled by Rob Davidson at Sax Alive. This is a beautiful example of a legendary model. This horn can play with a huge booming robust blues tone and can also whisper the sweetest subtone you’ve ever heard. The mechanism is tight and solid as it has never had a lot of play, and Rob has carefully adjusted the entire horn. The engraving is exquisite and the horn has been lightly relacquered at some point, mostly on the back of the bell where there may have been some lacquer wear, however the engraving is still beautifully crisp and sharp.
The neck is exceptional for a horn of this age, with no pull down at all.
Comes in a functional case from the era, but could do with an upgrade in the future. It also comes with a 12 month warranty warranty on all mechanical parts and pads.
