Nine new pads were installed and the rest have been re-seated. The snap in resonators and the Norton springs are all there, and the horn is very responsive. The original lacquer is in incredible condition with some light blotches noticeable below the thumb hook, and some light scratches around the strap hook (as shown in the photos). Included is the original Buescher True Tone mouthpiece, marked TRU-LAY 55/812 M , which is in very good condition as well.
The case is fully functional and nice inside. The latch springs pop out as they should, and the interior does not have any odors. Also included is a vintage strap, lyre and cork grease. This package is a true time capsule, a rare find in this condition!
