Bird Vintage King Super 20 - Pearl Side Keys!
This is an exceptional original lacquer Super 20 alto saxophone, serial number 303021. The photos tell the story the best. This saxophone as professionally played and maintained over the years and was never abused. Sonically, the Super 20 plays with tons of projection and punch.  These super 20’s are incomparable for any discerning alto player looking to add that Cannonball Adderley sass to their sound.  Similarly the super 20 saxophones tend to have a unique response to the way they take your air which is very helpful for articulating at fast tempos as well as subtoning.  This horn is an absolutely world class player and quite the looker as well. 
 
It showcases excellent original lacquer coverage across the body while be complemented with the original pearl side keys and crisp engraving. The original sterling silver neck with matching serial number stamp and under-slung octave key is with the saxophone as well. It shows no history of serious repair and has never been pulled down. The body tube, bow and bell are all in excellent condition.  There is some modest play wear to the lacquer around the bow but the bow retains its perfect conical shape. The bow cap is great shape and has never been pushed in. This saxophone shows off the full set of pearl key touches on the side keys, palms and G#. It also has the original pearl rollers. 
 
This alto received a mechanical overhaul this year by one of our veteran techs George Bunk and is in top notch playing condition sitting on a set of premium leather Valentino pads with seamless domed resonators. George used synthetic gray felt for the setup and the setup will last for years to come.  It even feels like a new saxophone! We will also go thorough the sax once more before shipping to make sure it is perfect.
