Product ID: JKSX90RVintageAlto
This is the SX90R “Vintage” Alto Saxophone by Julius Keilwerth. These are impressive looking instruments that are certainly very exceptional players. The body features a clear lacquered vintage finish and brushed nickel keys, with black pearl key touches. In addition all three of the palm keys can be adjusted to fit the contours of anyone’s hands, large or small. The G# key also has a very handy additional mechanism to prevent it from sticking. This instrument does have rolled tone holes.
Un-like many of the professional horns on the market today the Keilwerth is not an attempt to copy the Mark VI. The Keilwerth Vintage has a great edge to the sound but is neither extremely bright nor especially dark. It is a versatile instrument that is a favorite of many of today’s top players. This particular model has a very vibrant tone and great flexibility. The bigger body bow provides for a bigger free blowing sound and a wider dynamic range. Its bow size also gives this horn a truly ridiculous low end for sure!
