This is a real beauty! A King Zephyr tenor sax made in Cleveland, Ohio, USA in 1952. This sax has been fully stripped washed, hand polished and rebuilt (repadded last year with premium calf pads, corks/felts/tubing etc) It plays perfectly with a smooth, super fast, quiet action (a real nice job!) and that gorgeous proper King sound!
This Zephyr was produced when the Super 20s were made and ran at the same time. As such we believe they have the same, if not very very similar body and bore size and differ mainly in appearance - the octave mechanism and neck brace are different, the keyguards are "eyebrow" style and the engraving is a different design. Key work wise looks exactly the same as an early Super 20, even the removable triangular guard is identical. This Zephyr has the desirable double socket neck and sounds and feels just like an early Super 20 without the heavy price tag!
There is some lacquer wear and a few little bruises here and there but nothing horrible or serious - see photos. A great players horn - very comfortable and surprisingly "modern" feeling.
This classic, vintage horn comes with a clean, good condition ProTec USA Leather covered, hard, shaped flightcase (£300 new!) - there is a little wear to the corners and one handle has been repaired but a great case!
Again this sax comes with our famous 12 month warranty - so no need to be concerned about buying a "vintage" sax!
*REFURBISHED - a refurbished instrument has (at the very least) been stripped, washed, cleaned, polished, professionally rebuilt and set up to play perfectly. Worn corks, felts and pads will have been replaced, spring tensions balanced, key heights adjusted etc. Some instruments will have been completely overhauled using all new pads - any specialist work or customization will be included in the instrument description.
ALL refurbished instruments come with a full 12 month warranty!
