The New Buescher?

Question:
The New Buescher?
I have seen a few of the New Buescher saxes in stores....they look nice...but are priced as a student sax...my friend plays one...and I compared to the Selmer Super Action Serie II, and they play just about the same, only the Buescher is lighter in weight...Are these saxes all they are cracked up to be? Would their value increase in years to come? It's been bothering me, so I had to let this off my chest. Thanks!

Answer:
Are you asking about sopraninos (tiny Eb horns) or sopranos (mostly Bb models)?
I sure wasn't aware that the "new" Bueschers came in 'nino's. If you are talking about sopranos, your list of selections is woefully inadequate.
If you are talking about 'ninos, I just sold a Rampone 'nino that was a wonderful example of these little screamers. My Rampone played better than a Selmer Serie II I tried, plus it was keyed to hi-F# (admittedly of questionable value on a 'nino) and 24kt-gold plated with full engraving.
As far as the new Buescher sopranos increasing in value, I doubt it. The one example I saw was awful - so bad I had no interest in even trying it (while I did try other horns at that store). From my one experience and from what I've heard, stay away from the "new" Bueschers. The vintage Bueschers are wonderful horns (I own four). DAVE

Answer:
Ditto Dave's comment on current Buescher models. The one I played was flimsy (soft brass), had cheap pads and uneven toneholes. I'd stay away from them.

Answer:
Its terrible that the once great name of buescher is put on crap just to sell it.
