Product ID: 367420Super20Ten
This is a great players original lacquer vintage King Super 20 Tenor Sax, serial number 367420. If you are looking for a smokin' power house player and don't mind some per-existing cosmetic character this tenor is a real win. It plays with a huge punchy sound and has some incredible projection. The sound on the horn has a lush spread to it which stays nice and balanced from top to bottom. The upper register of this King is quite exceptional as well.
This King is in very solid physical condition overall showing the attributes of a well seasoned instrument. The pictures tell its story the best. The sax has seen a large number of performances in its day but shows no signs of slowing down. There is a history of some light dent work and some re-solders. It includes the original neck double socket sterling silver neck in good condition. The neck matches the horn in terms of beauty but has never been pulled down or seriously damaged. This tenor is missing the original clothes guard.
This tenor is currently playing through some leaks. Most of the pads are in decent shape but the horn could use some regulation as well as 5 to 6 pads. Saxquest loves doing overhauls and set-ups on Super 20's but our shop is unfortunately backed up for weeks. As such we are offering this tenor in as is condition at a very premium price. If you are going to be putting a lot of play time on this tenor you will ultimately want to get it worked in the future but it is currently playing. (see video)
