Saxophone/Buescher Sax 225625

The Buescher Sax 225625 looks a peach. Did you play it? I own a gold plated #202554 (1926) and play it every day. It is a superb alto and with a 6* Link ebonite it goes very well. A Meyer is just too loud.

In my opinion a good instrument does not belong in a museum: it should be played. Market value is about 1200 indeed. Although only a true enthusiast - most players are into French stuff - will pay this for a US horn.

All the best, Albert

I am interested in networking with other saxophone players of all levels of experience and answering questions about varied techniques and methods of training, specific brands and models made, mouthpieces, reeds, and various other questions about performance.


I have been playing sax since 1977 where as a student of the clarinet I wanted to play the instrument of my Jazz heroes. I studied under Berklee College of Music renowned Jazz theorist Andrew Jaffe and I have a degree in Music Business from Berklee. I have traveled and performed in several countries mostly in Europe and North America. As an instructor, I have taught students from beginning through college/professional performance ability. I previously owned The Horn Doctor, a band instrument repair shop. Since 1998, I have been playing alto and tenor sax with the Dexter Thomas Band which is an 11-piece horn-band playing hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's. I play saxophone in the worship and praise band at my local church as well.
