Reduced Price! EX 90 SII – Saxquest Set-Up Included!
This is a Keilwerth EX90 II tenor sax from the 1990's made in Germany, serial number 104151. It was previously owned by a local Saint Louis pro and has been extensively played over the years in a large number of musical formats. The sax is not the prettiest around but it has a huge sound and an awesome amount of power. If you are looking for a great gigging tenor on a budget you can not go wrong with an EX 90.
The sax definitely shows plenty of cosmetic character but the body is in solid physical condition. There has been some smaller dings taken out of the horn in the past but it has never had any serious body repair. Its bow and bell flare are also both in good shape, the bow cap is perfect and has never been pushed in or damaged. The previous owner of the sax did at some point remove all of the key pearls. Leaving just raw brass key touches. While it does not look as flashy as a full set of pearls it does still feel very comfortable under the fingers. The reach to the front F key is especially positive. Some modern horns like the P. Maurait Influence model are intentionally made with brass key touches in order enhance the natural resonance of the instrument. This Keilwerth is with out question especially free blowing.
This saxophone does also include the original Keilwerth box case and the original neck. The neck is missing much of its finish but has never been pulled down and is in great shape.
The Keilwerth is currently in the Saxquest shop being professionally set-up and ships out in perfect playing condition. If you are looking to get into a good power player for a great price you will want to give this EX 90 II serious consideration.
