Original Sterling Silver and Gold Lacquer Finish
This is a beautiful King H.N. White Silver Sonic Super 20 tenor saxophone in original finish, serial number 385246. Talk about a real beauty. The previous owner of the tenor professionally played and maintained it over the years. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in stellar original condition. The bell flare is also in great shape and has never been pulled down. This Super 20 features the trade mark King Silver Sonic gold inlay engraving on the bell and star-burst engraving on the low B and Bb keys. There is no history of major dent repair any where on the saxophone. All of the key guards and guard feet are in great shape and have never been re-soldered. This saxophone does include the original sterling silver  neck with single socket. Its neck is in very good physical condition and has never been pulled down. The one mentionable repair to the instrument is the previous owner did have an electric Varitone style neck pick-up on this neck at one point in time. It was professionally removed the right way and filled with a brass plug. See picture ( 21) 
If you are looking for a absolute knock out player with a classic King sound you are not going to want to pass over this Super 20. It takes the air in exceptionally easy and has a robust and very open free blowing sound. The tenor has a beautiful crystal clear projecting sound. Its core sound has a warm center to it but as you might expect it does lean towards the brighter and edgy side of the color spectrum. Because the instrument was so well maintained by the previous owner the key action still has a nice fresh feel under the fingers. 
This saxophone came into our shop on a very old set of pads past their prime. Because it is a very special horn and a monster player we want to do it up the right way. It is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a complete professional restoration. The Saxquest professional overhaul will include a complete dissemble and cleaning of the instrument then a replacement of all pads, corks and felts. Followed by play testing and a very precise final set-up. The saxophone will soon be in perfect playing condition sporting a fresh set-up with all new Valentino premium pads, metal resonators and all new corks and felts. 
This saxophone ships with the original hard case and white King mouthpiece.
