Mod 37 – 60xx A — SOLD

I used this model on many tours and recordings, including my alto work on my album Chakra.

Great intonation, very balanced throughout. Lacquer is almost perfect (and original).

It is a bright horn, even with the plastic resonators. A modern sound – projecting but with a great core.

Buescher True Tone

Big beautiful sound. From the late-1920s. This horn has a lot of character. Some charming quirks. Upper resister is a little high in pitch, like many older horns, but allows you to really fill up the sound. Feels almost like a tenor, such a big sound. Very special horn. This horn looks great, too.

Evette/Buffet-Crampon

Probably an intermediate model. For students and professionals. This has a modern feel – a lot of brightness and projection. Great for lead alto work. Would cover the section well. Easy to play.

Mod 37 – 75xx A

I used this model on many tours and recordings, including my alto work on my album Chakra.

This horn plays very balanced and in tone. It has small, metal resonators. Has a fat, dark sound, but it can still project. This horn makes me feel like I wan to PLAY!

Transitional Model – 45xx A

This is the model that I am currently playing. Probably my overall favorite vintage from the early Vitos. This and the Model 37. I have recorded many albums on this and have been touring with it for the past at least three years. This horn has a darker sound, with no resonators. Has a lot of color without being stuffy in any way. Easy to play.

Transitional Model (with RH bell keys) – 217xx — SOLD

This is a rare horn – a transitional model but with right hand low B and Bb keys, which is unusual. Has a modern feel, but with the character of the older horns. A great combination of traits. Great for playing lead, with metal resonators. Really sings and has great dynamics.

Transitional Model – 29xx A

This is the model that I am currently playing. Probably my overall favorite vintage from the early Vitos. This and the Model 37. Plastic resonators, which gives it a warm sound. This horn has a lot of character and projection, and really balanced and easy to play. Even though it’s an older sax, to me it feels more modern than many vintage horns.
