If you are looking for a real deal player then you are going to love this one. Vintage original lacquer H.N. White King Super 20 tenor saxophone, serial number 298198. While it might not be the prettiest Super 20 we have had in it is a knock out player. It has a huge and powerful sonic character. The air intake is so fast and efficient on this instrument you can go from the softest pianissimo to ultra punchy fortissimo with little effort. If you want a horn with out resistance you are going to be hard pressed to find anything more free blowing then this Super 20. 
 
The previous owner of this sax took good care of it while putting a nice of play time on it. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great shape. This saxophone does show case all of classic Super 20 features including pearl inlays on the side keys, palm keys and G#. There is sunburst engraving on the B and Bb bell keys as well as floral engraving on the bell. This sax is also sporting the original pearl key rollers on the left and right hand table keys. There is history of some very precise repair on this sax. It has a small number of re-solders on some of the key guard feet but nothing out of the ordinary. The solder repair work is top notch and super clean. Bow and bow cap are both in terrific condition. The bow cap shows no signs of being damaged or creased in the past. The neck strap ring has also been solder repaired in the past, see picture 13.
 
This saxophone comes with the original sterling silver neck with double socket, under slung octave key and  matching serial number stamp. It is in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
 
Right now this tenor is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in the Saxquest shop. The Saxquest overhaul will include a dissemble and cleaning. All new Valentino pads, metal resonators, corks, felts and a key regulation. Once complete the sax will be in perfect playing condition. Please stay tuned for more information. Once the overhaul is complete we will put up a fresh set of photos and a new video.
