vintage aristocrat

I recently posted about what tenor to get for blues, I appreciate the help, I think I'll go with a Buescher Aristocrat since that's the alto I have right now and I really like the sound. I'm looking at some old ones, including a 1939, and am just wondering if any of these are C or if they are all the Bb I am used to. Thanks again!

    Go for the 1939 horn , these are the best by buescher , i think your other one was a post buy out horn selmer owned buescher and are far inferiour horns compared to the genuine bueschers Dave

      I appreciate your response, but do you know if they made Bb and C in this year, or are they all Bb/"low pitch"?
