This is a King Super 20 tenor sax made in 1972 in Eastlake, Ohio, USA.
Super 20s are legendary jazz horns most famously played by Cannonball Adderley, Yusef Lateef, Charlie Parker, Hank Mobley, Tina Brooks, Wardell Grey, Wilton Felder ... they have a HUGE sound and are considered to be one of the best saxophones ever made - they may not be as versatile to some as a Selmer MKVI but they are the sax to beat in the jazz arena!
It has been recently serviced and blows top to bottom with ease!. It is finished in the original lacquer about 75-80% or so intact.
Tuning is great, action is very light and quick - breeze to play - super horn - lots of fun and lots of colours in the sound.
Nice condition, but it has been played and is not a museum piece but has been very well looked after - a good honest sax with some wear and bruises here and there - check out the photos - but nothing serious.
Overall a very nice, super playing, vintage, American, classic horn - these things are increasing in value every year and getting hard to find!
Comes complete with very nice, clean, condition Selmer Pro Pack shaped case and of course our famous 12 month warranty!
BUY VINTAGE WITH CONFIDENCE!
