HELP, I Want One!

Beautiful condition King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” tenor sax, serial number 394312. This is a true late vintage King Cleveland model, produced before the company moved to Eastlake. It is in tremendous condition and is going to ship with a fresh set of pads from our repair shop.

 

As you can see in the photos, this horn looks exquisite. The lacquer on the shows minimal wear, mostly light scratching and whatnot, and the sax has obviously been well cared for. This model features a sterling silver bell and neck, with gold wash in the bell and gold inlay in the engraving. It is startling to see in person and really stands out. A previous owner added custom risers on side E and one of the palm keys, for comfort, and these can be left on or removed at the buyer's request. The horn shows no other modifications and is in outstanding physical condition.

 

This tenor arrived to us on old pads well past prime. It is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete rebuild. We'll take it apart, clean and sanitize it, and replace all pads and key adjustment corks and felts. We'll use premium firm leather pads, matched with seamless, oversized metal resonators, and only the best synthetic material for a clean, tight feel.

 

This tenor plays just as you want a Silver Sonic to play: big, edgy, and powerful. It takes all of the air you can move through it, and you never feel like you are hitting a wall. Extremely free blowing and responsive, and you can feel the resonance under your fingers. This is definitely a player's horn, but with the looks to grab a collector's attention as well. Worldclass tenor all around.
