Sweet late Cleveland vintage King Super 20 alto sax, serial number 418734. The original lacquer on this alto is in very good shape, and it is playing fantastic on a recent overhaul. If you are a big fan of these Super 20's but can't afford the earlier models with pearl side keys, this instrument is a great option.

 

This horn has been played but obviously never abused. There's some evidence of minor past dent work in the bottom bow, but the curve is perfect and there is no lasting trauma. There are also no resolders. The original sterling silver neck has never been pulled down or damaged.

 

This alto was repadded in the last couple years, and features all new pads with brown nylon resonators. It is just starting to get that “broken in” kind of feeling, and while there are a couple little clicks in the action, the pads are sealing well. We are giving the buyer the option of buying the horn as-is at a reduced price, or opting to have us to our complete pro set up. Our adjustment would include all new key adjustment corks/felts (to quiet the action), reseating pads, and optimizing key heights and spring tensions. Please allow 3-4 weeks for us to complete this work, if you choose that option.

 

This alto plays with a clear, concise attack, and offers plenty of punch and projection. It takes your air very fast and responds lightning quick. You will have no problem producing edge on this beauty! It's a great rock and funk horn, and is made for those players who dig that kind of voice. Ships in its original hard case.
