King Series V Super 20 Alto Saxophone 1972 Pre owned
NB Pre owned commission sale item. Shop collection only.
This is a Series V King Super 20 alto made by the H N White Company in Eastlake, Ohio USA in 1972. The King Super 20 is regarded as one of the greatest altos ever made for jazz, having been played by Charlier Parker and Cannonball Adderley among others. However, the bright, punchy tone for which these horns are known makes them great for blues, soul etc. King made very few changes to the design of the Super 20 over its long production run.
This horn was professionally relacquered some years ago, possibly at the King factory. The engraving on the bell is clean and sharp. The horn features the classic King underslung key on the crook.
This horn is set up with a light, responsive action.
