King Zephyr – Sterling Silver Neck
This is vintage King Zephyr Special by the H.N. White Company in original lacquer, serial number 237763. The alto is in great shape showcasing its original lacquer finish with the complement of the original pearl side and palm keys. This one is also with the original sterling silver neck with matching serial number stamp. The body of the sax is in outstanding condition showing a modest amount of play wear for its vintage. Its body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in nice original condition. All of the original key guards are also present and in good condition. There is just one notable solder repair to the upper post and register pip. The original sterling silver neck is in great shape. It was very slightly pulled down in the past. 
 
The Zephyr Special is hands down one of the most powerful and free blowing altos on our sales floor at this time. In some ways it seems to have a darker sonic color then the later Super 20's but it is not lacking anything in the projection and power . It takes the air in super fast and has an immediate response. The key work on the Zephyr is smooth under the fingers and allows for a ultra fluid playing experience.  
 
This alto is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. The Saxquest set-up will included a disassembly, cleaning and thorough regulation of all the key work. We will also replace any needed materials. The alto ships out in perfect playing condition with original King wood hard case.
