HELP, I Want One!

Original Silver Sonic Alto 1958
This is a very sweet vintage King Super 20 “Silver Sonic” alto saxophone, serial number 364982. If you are looking for a powerful free blowing player this Silver Sonic might just be unbeatable. 
 
These altos are known for being brighter players with plenty of power. This one in particular is no exception. It takes the air in quick and can be pushed hard all day long with out ever letting you down. If you are in need of a bright lead alto sound or are looking for something with power and versatility for funk music this alto is going to be very hard to pass on. 
 
The body of the Super 20 is in excellent physical condition. There is signs of honest play wear across the body and bell area, but no major repairs. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all fantastic. There is no history of past re-solders and no major dent work. All of the original key work and key guards are in good shape. All of the guard feet are also present and in good condition. The most impressive thing about this alto is the condition of the gold inlay around the bell engraving, as well as the gold around the outer bell flare. This alto includes the original neck. The double socket neck is in very nice condition and has never been pulled down. 
 
This Super 20 was last fully overhauled in 2007 by Chris Watrous of Saxquest. Chris did a tremendous job re-padding it with premium leather pads and metal Reso Tech resonators. Once the restoration was complete the saxophone was put on display in the Saxquest museum and seldom played. We just completed a fresh, complete pro set up, and the sax is in perfect playing condition and feels awesome under your fingers. Ships with original King hard case.
