Premium Player – Pearl Side Key Super 20 Tenor 1953 - FANTASTIC PRICING
This is a burning King Super 20, second series tenor with pearl side keys and original lacquer, serial number 336448. In addition to the pearl side keys the sax also shows off its crisp engraving including a sunburst pattern on the bell keys. The tenor does have some modest play wear typical for a horn of its vintage. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in very nice condition and have no history of any serious trauma from the past. All of the original key guards are in great shape and have never had to be re-soldered in the past. This saxophone does include the original neck with matching serial number stamp. It still shows off some of the original gold lacquer over spray and has never been pulled down. 
The Super 20 plays with an incredible balance from top to bottom and has a world class character in the way it projects and sounds. It takes the air in quick and is super efficient and lively in its response to air flow. The low end is big and beefy and it stays full and crisp all the way into the extremes of the altissimo. If you are looking for a horn that can hold it down in a big band and jazz settings as well as something that can throw down hard in a blues and R&B band the Super 20 is definitely the way to go. 
This sax has been professionally maintained and played by the previous owner. It shows off a nice set of leather pads and brown plastic resonators. We got a nice video of Austin playing it in the store before we checked it in to the shop. It is currently awaiting a professional set-up in the Saxquest shop and ships in perfect playing condition. Don't miss out on a tremendous Super 20 tenor.
