HELP, I Want One!

Pearl Side Key Vintage Super 20 – 1951
This is a very sweet vintage King H.N. White Super 20 alto sax in original lacquer, serial number 319681. The sax is not the prettiest but it is featuring the full complement of pearl side, palm and table keys. It also showcases its original lacquer finish. This Super 20 also has the elaborate King engraving around the bell as well as the sunburst pattern on the bell keys. These Super 20's are great power players and are a favorite with lead alto and straight ahead jazz. The brilliance, outstanding projection and great power also make them ideal for rock music and R&B.
 
The alto came into our shop on some very old pads so it is currently awaiting the Saxquest professional overhaul. It will soon be in perfect playing condition with all new premium leather Valentino pads, resonators, new corks , felts and an extremist precise key regulation. 
 
The body of the sax is in very good condition. It does also include the original double socket neck. The body tube, bow, bell and bell flare are all in nice original condition. There is some wear to the bow cap ( See picture 20 and 21 ) There are a few other small ding areas on the saxophone, these will be removed as part of the Saxquest overhaul. The bell flare is in good shape and has never been pulled down. The original sterling silver double socket neck is also with the sax and in good condition. It does also feature the matching original serial number.
 
Once the repair work is complete we will take a new spread of photos and post a fresh play test video as well.
