King Saxello in Gold Lacquer 1924
This is a vintage King H.N. White “Saxello” soprano saxophone in gold lacquer from the 1920's, serial number 74282. The instrument is in very solid condition and is an absolute blast to play. 
 
The King Saxello is one of the more unique looking vintage instruments around. They are essentially a soprano saxophone but have an attached tipped bell and neck that stick out around 90 degrees. This particular Saxello was re-lacquered a long time ago. The job was done well and you can still clearly see the engraving along the side of the bell. It has seen some repair in the past to some of the posts. The bell, bell flare and neck crook also show traces of some past dent repair. This sax has all the original key work.  
 
This soprano was previously re-padded in another shop with leather pads and metal domed resonators. It is currently playing pretty decently on the older set up but is a little leaky and could use some TLC. As such it is currently in line in our shop to receive a professional set-up. Once the set-up is complete it will be in perfect condition. During the work any needed materials will also be replaced. 
 
These saxophones are extremely colorful instruments. To my ears this one seems to have a brilliant quality with crystal clear projection. This instrument ships out in perfect playing condition with a very  nice wood hard case.
