HELP, I Want One!

Ships with Complete Overhaul
This is a gorgeous, late vintage King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” alto sax, serial number 655165. Featuring the iconic sterling silver bell and neck, this is an iconic model. The earlier “Cleveland” era Super 20’s net the high dollars, but if you’ve been hesitant to drop that kind of money yet still crave a Silver Sonic, this is the way to go.
The pictures tell the tale on this gem. It is beautiful, all-original condition, and has never been refinished/relacquered. There is mild lacquer wear to be found on the backside of the body and bell, from where it may rest against the player during use, but mostly just cosmetic scratching and the like. Only minimal wear on the usual touch points. There are no serious dents or dents, no signs of any past trauma. The horn has been played and lovingly cared for by its original owner, and never abused.
This alto arrived to us on old pads, many still original to the factory. As such, it is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete overhaul. We’ll take it apart, clean it, and replace all pads and material, matching the pads with oversized, slightly domed metal resonators. We’ll have it singing better than the day it left the factory. All work to get the sax in perfect playing shape is included in the price.
This Super 20 plays with a full voice, with lots of projection and edge. While currently blowing through some leaks, I can still get a feel for its presence, and can’t wait to play it once our work is completed to see what it is truly capable of. Great sax for Silver Sonic lovers on a budget. Ships in its original case as pictured.
