King C-Melody 1924
This is a vintage King H.N. White gold lacquer C-melody saxophone, serial number  68406. The body of this saxophone is very clean showing off clear lacquer and engraving. It was re-lacquered at some point in the past but the work was done decently as it does not appear to have been overly buffed. All of the original key work is intact and functioning. These old Kings feature key work to high F with a front F key, trill G# and a back door Eb key. 
 
It looks like someone did a re-pad on this horn not around 10 years ago and then the horn sat in its case for several years with no playing. The leather pads and brown Nylon resonators are in good condition and do not look like they have seen very much play time. As it sits the horn is leaking pretty heavily and is not super easy to play. If you are looking to add a pretty example of an early King to your collection that plays just a bit this horn would be great. If you are wanting it for a lot of serious playing it is ultimately going to need some general playing condition service before this will be possible. 
 
We are selling this saxophone in as is condition at a lower price point. It does ship with a very nice non original box wood hard case.
