Recently reduced from £3450 this is a quality saxophone at an excellent price. Owner is keen to sell and offers will be considered.
This is a rare vintage King Super 20 alto sax in excellent condition for its age. This horn was made in 1956 in Cleveland, Ohio and dates from the golden age of these instruments. It comes with the original solid silver neck featuring the double socket receiver and matching serial number. Regarded by many as a classic alto for jazz, similar vintage Super 20s were played by Charlie Parker and Cannonball Adderley amongst others.
This horn was recently professionally overhauled and is set up with all-new pads with metal domed resonators, new springs etc and a light, responsive action. The sax was professionally re-lacquered some years ago and there is some lacquer wear here and there. As might be expected given the vintage, there are some minor bumps here and there on the body but nothing of significance.
These instruments are noted for their fast response, strong tone and ability to project the sound when required and this one is no exception.
Comes with a vintage King case in excellent working order.
