SML Made – King Marigaux
This is an excellent King Marigaux tenor saxophone made by SML, serial number 22676. These tenors are extremely responsive players and are well known for their powerful dark character. This one in particular takes your air in very efficiently and is quite free blowing in response. The King Marigaux is a great horn if you are looking for a big free blowing sound while keeping consistent control and maintaining a warm core. A fantastic player at a great price. 
 
The tenor is physically in solid condition regarding the body tube, bow, bow cap and bell. Like many of the best horns this one does show some history of past repair. There is a few re-solders on key guard feet as well as a past solder repair to the body to bell brace. The sax is with the original neck which is in good shape. At this point the neck is with out any lacquer as is the bell of the saxophone. 
 
This tenor came into our shop playing up a storm on a slightly older set of leather pads and metal resonators. The keywork has a couple minor clicks from older adjustment corks, but the tenor is sealing well and playing great, so rather than do a lot of work on the horn (which would raise its price), we have decided to sell this one as-is at a greatly reduced, bargain price.
 
A previous owner added an additional ring for a neck strap below the original one. This is a nice positive and allows for a slightly more familiar and comfortable feel. The original neck strap ring also remains. 
 
If you are on the hunt for just a killer player and don't want to break the bank, you can't do much better than this. This tenor is a whole lot of fun to play! Ships in King wood hard case.
