Late Vintage Silver Sonic
This is a very late vintage King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” alto saxophone, serial number 745328. These later vintage Super 20's feature a sterling silver bell, single socket neck and key work to high F#. If you are after a Super 20 but want to avoid the high price tag of the “Cleveland” vintage these later ones can be picked up at a great price. This horn in particular is in outstanding physical condition and is quite striking. There is a modest amount of cosmetic play wear but nothing too terribly major. It shows no history of past body or solder repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in excellent original condition. 
 
This alto came into the shop playing nicely on its original factory set-up and pads. It has a quick free blowing response to air flow and packs a nice punch as well. It does not look like this sax has ever seen any serious attention in a shop. While it is currently playing on its older pads the saxophone is going to ultimately need to receive a serious set-up or be overhauled before it can be considered in perfect playing condition. At this time we are selling this alto playing in as is condition in order to keep the selling price at a premium.
