Beaugnier Special Perfect Tenor Sax
S/N 54xx (Doctor Sax Stock #1033)
The Beaugnier factory in France made the Vito's and Noblets and LeBlancs in the 1950's and 60's
The pictures are below
New pads, felts and corks…ready to go.
Or...you could buy a horn from Taiwan or R.O.C.
Picture one. You can see 3 of the lapis lazuli inserts and the keyguard I fabricated.
Picture two. A little closer of two lapis lazuli inserts and the replacement keyguard.
Picture 3. Two of the lapis inserts look white due to reflected light.
Picture 4. The engraving was extremely difficult to capture. I need to rethink my camera setup and lighting.
Picture 5. The bow is in good shape.
Picture 6. The bell brace has that typical Beaugnier/Noblet/early Vito look.
Picture 7. Silver-plate almost entirely off the clothesguard from wear.
Picture 8. This picture and the next few,through picture 12, all try to capture the engraving. Also you can see the stripe where the silver is missing. Not really a scratch...not sure what happened there.
Picture 12. Engraving and another closeup of the fabricated guard (the lower one).
Picture 13. Stately.
Picture 14. Majestic.
Picture 15. Whatever.
Picture 18. Here you can see the fingernail file touch of the sliding lever that allows the player to control the G# key articulation as to whether it engages the bell keys or not. Your choice dude.
Picture 19. This shows the cunning G# lever linkage to the G# key. I love it!
