This is a vintage SML King Marigaux tenor saxophone, serial number 26906. The lacquer condition on the tenor is about as nice as you are going to see on a vintage horn. There is just a little bit of light play wear showing but it has no history of major repair on the body and original neck. The sax has received zero re-solders in its day. In addition to looking very nice the sax also has all of the original gold plated springs and key pearls. One of the coolest features on the SML tenors is the adjustable lever behind the G# key. This lever allows the player to move back and forth between non articulating and articulating G#.
These Marigaux's are great players when you are looking for a rich French core sound. This one in particular has a nice focused quality and projects quite clearly. The beautiful sonic character of the tenor makes it a very fun and powerful instrument to play.
This sax is currently in the Saxquest shop being professionally set-up and ships in perfect playing condition. If you are looking for a tenor with a beautiful clear sound that is in gorgeous condition this is going to be a hard one to pass on.
