I’m anxiously awaiting my new Eppelsheim bass sax and looking forward to using it in the Inspektor Gadget quartet. So I’m getting ready to sell my ’21 (estimated) Buescher TruTone bass sax. It comes with a new Mason Pro hard case, a gig bag (update – sold), a silver Gloger neck, two mouthpieces (Conn Eagle pickle barrel and a Paul Coats tweaked Bari sax mouthpiece that works great on this instrument).
The instument is original silver plated with a gold bell wash treatment. Two modifications have been made. The original neck was shortened about a half inch to give me more room to adjust to the various pianos I played with. And an Amati spit valve was added because this instrument didn’t get one from the factory.
All the work has been done by world famous musician and repair tech Paul Woltz of Kennelly Keys. He has fixed a couple of intonation issues so that I can play the full range of this instrument from top to bottom with no alternate fingering needed.
The instrument will ship from Seattle and including the shipping, the cost to you is $7300. Just leave me a comment and I will contact you. If you live in the Seattle metropolitan area, you can come try the instrument out. I have had many offers on my many vintage instruments like the one Jay Easton gave me for the silver Selmer Paris Bb clarinet. After playing it he said, “If you ever want to sell this, let me know.”
