Vintage Superba 1 – Rolled Tone Holes – Made In Germany
This is nice vintage H. Couf Superba 1 made by Julius Keilwerth, serial number 76748. The alto is in great shape and features rolled tone holes and key work to  high F#. It came into our shop on mostly older pads. As such it is currently in our shop awaiting our professional re-pad and will soon be in perfect playing condition. These saxophones can take in a ton of air and put out a huge sound when desired. Projection is exceptional on this instrument. 
The body of the alto is in fantastic condition and does not have any history of major repair. There is one re-solder on one of the key guard feet for low Eb. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in great shape. Its original neck with matching serial number is with the saxophone and in excellent condition. All of the original key pearls are also with the sax and are in nice shape as well. This sax shows engraving on the side of the body tube “Made exclusively for H. Couf by Julius Keilwerth”. 
The Superba 1 is a outstanding choice if you are looking to get a vintage European sound with a more robust sonic foundation. This sax ships in perfect playing condition with a Saxquest professional overhaul. The professional overhaul will include all new Valentino pads and resonators as well as new corks, felts and a precise key regulation.
