This is a vintage King Super 20 alto sax with full pearl side keys, serial number 281206. If you are looking to get into a Series I Super 20 at a great price this is a fantastic opportunity. The Series I Super 20 features pearl side, palm and table G# keys as well a sunburst engraving on the bell keys. This particular Super 20 might not be the prettiest but it is in solid physical condition and ships with a fresh Saxquest re-pad and the original case.
The alto shows no history of having any major trauma in the past. The bow and bow cap are both excellent as is the bell flare. Its original neck is also in fantastic shape and has never been pulled down. This alto was re-lacquered at some point. It was mostly done quite some time ago and it was also done well. The original engraving is not overly buffed and looks very clear and crisp.
This alto was recently overhauled in the Saxquest shop by George Bunk and is in perfect playing condition. The professional re-pad includes all new leather Valentino pads with brown plastic resonators, new corks, felts and a very precise key regulation putting it into perfect playing condition. Saxquest has had a number of these altos in over the years and they are always great punchy and brighter players.
Don't miss out on a chance to grab a powerful American vintage alto!
