HELP, I Want One!

Freshly Repadded in the Saxquest Repair Shop

Here's the real deal for the saxophonist needing power: an original lacquer King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” tenor sax, serial number 460968. This horn is in tremendous shape physically, and has just been completely restored in the Saxquest repair shop. It is ready to go!


Some players will turn their noses at an Eastlake vintage Super 20, but it's just a way to get a great horn at a lower price. This is a true Silver Sonic tenor, with the sterling silver bell, and featuring gold inlay on the engraving and gold wash in the bell. The original sterling silver neck is also in great shape. This tenor has never been abused and shows no history of past dent work or trauma. The lacquer wear is just nominal for its age, and the sax looks fantastic.


This tenor was repadded using premium firm leather pads and a set of TM Custom oversized machined brass resonators. The resos are seamless flat metals and feature a screwback design, so you can re-use them in future pad changes. The sax has been set up with a medium-open key height and medium-light spring tension, and feels like butter under your fingers. The action is crisp and effortless.


Most players shopping for a Super 20 want presence and projection, and this example does not disappoint. It takes all of the air you can push through it, and you never feel like you are hitting a wall. A big, dynamic sound jumps out of the bell, but it also has color and character of tone. It's the whole package, and a very fun instrument to play.
