Art jr if I recall correctly. It was a collaboration between Gus Buescher and Harry Pedler after they had retired from their respective companies. I think '33 or '38 is the vintage.

The instrument was fine their was nothing really wrong with the horn. I probably should of kept it, seeing as I will probably be buying a soprano sometime over the next year. But I got a case of gas, and it had to be sold.So what was the story on this instrument? Did you not like it?
My best deal ever is a Buescher True Tone alto, #24643 (1914?) which I paid EUR 20 in a pawn shop. It needs complete overhaul (which I'll do myself) but still, I would call it a steal. At an auction I could by a KING Voll-True II alto silver plated, in mint conditions but octave key missing, for EUR 100. Apparently someone was almost ready with a full overhaul (pads are new) but he had to part from the instrument and forgot to put back the last key. Last, a Buffet BC20 Bb clarinet for EUR 120 (it needed repadding). Considering it is 10 years that I am fiddling with woodwinds, I would say that for me sheer luck kicks in once every 3.3 years....
