HELP, I Want One!

This is a near mint condition H Couf Superba I series alto sax, serial number 70540. This alto was just overhauled in our shop in the last year or so and ships in perfect playing shape. It looks beautiful and is a great find for players who like that classic Keilwerth sound.


Made by Keilwerth, this alto features many of the hallmarks of their top-of-the-line SX90R. It has the Keilwerth style pearl touches, and rolles tone holes throughout. The original lacquer on this alto is 99% with only minor cosmetic wear from nominal use. The horn shows no dents or dings, no previous repairs. The original neck has the matching serial number as well. It is the total package, in pristine overall condition.


We repadded this alto using premium firm leather pads and oversized, seamless metal resonators. The action feels crisp and clean under your fingers, with an effortless, quick feel. Sonically, this Couf plays just as you want from a vintage Keilwerth. Warm but not overly dark, and very punchy with a lot of presence. It cuts well, that's for sure! Ships in its original case, which is also in sterling shape. It has had one handle replaced, otherwise all original and perfect.
