Looking for a God Vintage Soprano

Hey Guys, I am a bit of a fan of Vintage saxes, and i like most things about them and i was interested in buying a soprano, probably a Buescher True Tone. What do you think? The_§ax

      Buescher true tones are about the best vintage sop you can get Dave

        I'll second the Buescher True Tones. The Conn New Wonder Series II straight sopranos are also very good. The earlier New Wonder Series I curved sopranos tend to have some intonation issues. Martin also made a great soprano.

          I love vintage horns, but Ive been realizing that the sops are horns I cant really get into. I recently sold my true tone curvie, and got a yani curved sop - now I'm happy

        I bought my alto and tenor new in 1966, but I guess they are considered vintage horns. I bought a 1962 soprano this year, which is the first used horn that I ever bought. I sent it to Paul Maslin in Chicago to shake it down. I paid four times more for the soprano than I paid for the alto and tenor together. I started on a buescher in 1959, and my family doesn't know what happened to it. It must be in someone's garage. I don't know much about horns, but i've had Selmer for 40 years. They do anything that I need to do.
