This is a black nickel plated Keilwerth SX90R series tenor sax, serial number 118889. This tenor is a true gigging professional's dream. The keywork feels a little bigger if you are coming from a Selmer, but you won't fit a bigger sound anywhere.
As you can see in the photos, it isn't the prettiest horn around, but the finish wear is just cosmetic. Physically the horn is still in great shape. It shows a couple past minor pings, but no serious past dents or trauma, including no past repairs. The neck has never been pulled down and there are no resolders anywhere. The rolled tone holes are all in great shape. This tenor was just repadded using premium materials and metal domed resonators, and ships in perfect adjustment.
Most players shopping for a Keilwerth want one thing, and that is volume. This tenor doesn't disappoint, playing with a full, powerful sound and a lot of edge that cuts though to the back of the room. It has a warm core, but the black nickel does brighten it a hair, so it doesn't sound overly dark. A very responsive instrument, great for those rock gigs where you need to be heard! Ships in a good Protec case.
