Vintage Keilwerth Tone King
This is a pretty vintage Keilwerth Tone King alto saxophone from Germany, serial number 88422. Usually we come across these saxophones in fairly rough condition so it is a nice treat to come across in such nice shape. The body is in outstanding condition and shows no history of major past repair. Its body tube, bell, bell flare are all in great original condition. The bow and bow cap are both perfect. This saxophone does also come with the original neck and case. The neck is in perfect contention and has never been pulled down. It also showcases a matching serial number stamp. 
The Tone King plays with a very full and fat core sound. It has a nice medium warm quality and is very quick in its response to air flow. A great horn if you are looking for something you can really push and put a ton of air into. The key work is quite comfortable on the horn and very akin to the way the modern SX90R feels. 
This alto came into our shop playing nicely on an older leather pads and brown plastic resonators. We are going to tweak the horn out on its current pads. In order to keep the price at a premium we are not going to go through the horn and give it our complete set-up. 
If you are looking to get into a great work hoarse alto for a good price you will not want to miss out on this Tone King.
