The pads were all replaced with Music Medic Tan pads, and all corks and felts were changed. The oil was also changed on every key mechanism.The sax was also given a double polish to make it shine like it used to back in its day. The sax plays great, with the typical Buecsher richness, and the standard old saxophone tricky G# and low E. The embouchure and support needed to play it is something anyone with a vintage horn would be familiar with. There are a few minor dents on the sax, but none are enough to effect playing at all.
There are also some small scuffs and scratches. The sax comes with a Belmonte mouthpiece with Yamaha ligature and cover, and with its original purple interior Buecsher case, with original handle and badge intact. Also comes with an old reed case from this horns past. If you have any questions, or would like to see additional pictures or hear it being played, feel free to contact me.
