Silver Plated King Zephyr Tenor
This is a very pretty silver plated King Zephyr tenor saxophone, serial number 242034. The tenor came into our store with an older overhaul from another shop. It is set-up with higher key action and lighter spring tension on leather pads and metal waffle resonators. The horn is currently playing down to a low Bb. That being said its pads are all pretty hard and do not have a lot of life left in them. You might be able to get by with doing some basic set-up work to make this horn better but most techs are going to recommend a complete overhaul in order to make it perfect. 
 
The body of the sax is in very clean condition showing off its silver plate finish and decorative engraving on the bell. Its body tube, bell, bow and bow cap and double socket neck are all in great shape. These older Zephyrs feature open faced bell keys, key work to front F as well as a triple neck strap ring. This sax was re-silvered at some point in the past but the work was done well as the engraving is still very crisp and has not been overly worn down. The saxophone is with all o f the original key work and key guards. 
 
We would love to do this horn up right with all new pads, materials and a fresh regulation but but due to the fact our shop is very backed up at this time we are offering it in as is condition at a lower price. If you have the time and would like us to do the work  make the selection on the drop down menu when adding the item to your shopping cart. Please be advised at this time the turn around time for an overhaul is approximately 12 weeks. 
 
Saxophone ships out with a nice wood box hard case.
