King Super 20 Tenor Sax
Here we have a vintage King Super 20 tenor saxophone made in Cleveland, serial number 397532. The King Cleveland tenors from this period were made shortly after the pearl side key era. The Super 20 is known for is tremendous free blowing response and powerful sound. This one in particular is no exception. It takes the air in nice and easy and plays with a huge sound. 
 
The tenor is in solid condition from top to bottom showing some normal signs of past use. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in good original condition with no signs of serious past repair. The saxophone does not show any history of past solder repair. All of the original key work and key guards are in good shape as well. This saxophone is with the original silver single socket neck. The neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
 
This saxophone came into our shop playing up a storm on an slightly older set-up from another shop with a good set of pads and brown resonators. To really do it up right we went through the horn top to bottom and replaced any needed materials as well as some of the pads in the upper stack. The saxophone is now in perfect playing condition. The previous owner of the saxophone had some home made risers added on to the G# key as well as a couple of the palm keys. We will leave those on the horn as they have a good feel, but they can be removed if requested. 
 
This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with King wood hard case.
