King H.N White Zephyr Special
This is very pretty vintage King H.N. White Zephyr Special tenor saxophone, serial number 209933.
 
The tenor shows off the trade mark King pearl side keys, pearl G#, alt F#, left hand octave key touch. The triple neck strap ring, extended bow cap and detailed engraving are also present on this tenor. Zephyr Special models also showed off exquisite engraving across the the bell bow, now cap and sunburst patterns on all of the bell keys. 
 
This tenor in particular is in very nice physical condition. It is easily one of the best examples of a factory re-lacquer job you will see. The current lacquer has a dark honey hue to it and the engraving  still has a clean crispness about it.  Its body tube, bow and bell are all in great original condition. The sax shows no history of receiving any major past repair and show no re-solders. All the key guards and guard feet are in great shape. This saxophone does include the original sterling silver double socket neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down, some of the lacquer over spray is also still present over the sterling.
 
This saxophone came into our shop on some pads well past their primes. It is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in the Saxquest shop. The Saxquest overhaul will include all new Valentino pads, metal resonators, new corks and felts. It will soon be in perfect playing condition. Once the work has been completed we will post fresh pictures. Please stay tuned for more information.
