King H.N. White Tenor
This is a vintage King H.N. White Model tenor saxophone serial number 105530. The tenor was manufactured in Cleveland Ohio in 1927 shortly before King shifted to the Voll-True model. It plays with a quick response to air flow and features a robust sonic character. This saxophone has a warm center but is also quite punchy. 
The body of the sax is in solid condition from top to bottom. There is some history of standard play wear and past repair on the horn. At this time most of the horn is in raw brass. It is with the original neck in good condition. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in good shape. These old King's are keyed to high F with straight tone holes and a trill G# key. 
This tenor came into our shop playing nicely on an older pad job. In order to keep the price down we are selling it in as is condition at a lower price. This sax is most ideal for the collector or anyone looking for a powerful back up horn. Because of its age it might not be suited for a student. While it is a very fun and easy to play horn in its own right it is also a great example of the early vintage King models. It showcases the playing and sound foundations King is now well known for. This tenor ships out playing in as is condition and includes a wood hard case.
