Great price on a 1937 vintage King Zephyr tenor sax, serial number 202562. This tenor was made before King introduced the Super 20 and, at the time, it was King's top-of-the-line model. It features beautiful extensive engraving on the bell, a triple strap neck ring, and doublet socket neck receiver. It has newer pads and will ship ready to go for the long haul.

 

As you can see in the photos, this tenor was relacquered at some point in its life (with keys nickel plated), but the work is about the best you'll find. It was obviously never buffed hard, and the factory original engraving on the bell is still sharp and clearly defined. This tenor was repadded recently using leather pads and brown plastic resonators. To really optimize it, the sax will go through our repair shop before shipping, where we'll replace some of the natural cork with better material, and adjust key heights and spring tensions throughout.

 

This tenor plays with a clear, open sound, with a nice spread and lively response. It takes your air well and response is quick. If you are on the hunt for that vintage King sound without breaking the bank on a Super 20, this is a fantastic option. Ships with original neck (matching serial number) and comes in a gig-ready, padded cloth gig bag.
