HELP, I Want One!

This is an absolutely gorgeous vintage King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” series tenor sax, serial number 488681. This tenor looks incredible with 95% original lacquer intact, and is going to get a fresh overhaul from our repair shop before shipping. It will come to you in all new pads and material, and freshly adjusted to bring years of enjoyment to come.


The photos tell the tale on this beauty. The only noticeable lacquer wear is found on the backside of the body tube and clothes guard, where it may rest against the player during play. There's a couple very tiny chair pings in the bottom bow, but no serious dents or past dent repair, and no resoldered joints anywhere. The sterling silver bell with gold wash inlaid in the engraving is stunning. The gold wash in the bell is perfect, and the original sterling silver neck has never been pulled down or damaged. Just a breathtaking horn top to bottom.


This tenor arrived to us on old pads, and it is currently in line in our repair shop for a complete overhaul. We'll take it apart and clean it up, replace all pads and material, using oversized seamless metal nickel resonators. The key action and spring tensions will be optimized, so it'll feel like a new horn again when you receive it.


If you are in the market for a Silver Sonic, you know the sound you are going for. This tenor plays big and powerful, with a lot of edge and punch. It carries well and stays full from low Bb up into the altissimo. It really rips! Ships in its original King case, which is also in pristine condition.
