The Super 20s were always evolving through the many phases and this was its most evolved form prior to the downfall of King. This is the most highly evolved, best playing revision of the King Super 20 made. After this version of the Super 20 King moved from the Cleveland factory to the East Lake factory and started dumbing down the Super 20 turning into into a more affordable choice.
Words do not exist yet to describe just how beautiful and magical this horn is in the hands!
I have been buying as many King Super 20s as I can find for a very long time and have never seen a King Super 20 silver sonic in this condition!
This horn is a time capsule, closet queen piece that barley shows very little signs of aging!
This is just an impeccable horn. You could go your hole life and never ever find a Silver Sonic like this one. I think when this horn is gone, as many horns as I buy I probally will never find one in this condition.
This horn is fresh out of the shop and is an absolutely killer playing horn.
The horn had almost a full overhaul with most of its pads and materials being changed.
The horn is setup to perfection with lighting fast action that clamps down quick but is also very delicate light to the touch.
This horn has no clicks, clanks or metal on metal. This horn has everything opening and closing just as should be!
Whoever ends up with this sax no doubt they are going to love how it plays!
This saxophone comes with its very valuable original factory crocodile tolex leather lined traypack case! This is an extremely rare and valuable case in fantastic shape. The case it self is quiet possibly the heaviest case ive ever felt and is a solid 20 pounds!
This case comes with its 2x original keys of the outside latch locks. This horn even comes with the original clarinet case key, ive never actually seen this!
This horn comes with its original white King mouthpiece that would have originally came with it. Ive seen these mouthpieces before and they are always stained brownish and chipped. This is the best one ive ever seen!!!
This horn comes with its original metal end plug.
Its nearly impossible to find a King Super 20 Silver Sonic in this condition. Kings patina and age more then some other brands so its very common to find Super 20s is very aged shape. This horn is jut an anamolie how nice it is!
This horn is a Silver Sonic so the entire bell and neck are actually pure solid sterling silver! Any horns with pure silver add a tonal characteristics that really helps to achieve a large then life big, bad and bold tone that really vibrates under your fingers like no other horn can!
This horns bell has an actual gold plated bell inner wash. Its gorgeous gold plating and the inside bell is bright and blinging gold. There is a deep scratch on the right side of the bell pictured in photo #4
Although this horn is extremely valuable and is in fantastic condition this horn is still an antique and has some used marks, scratching, smudging, tarnish, metal wear and other anomalies associated with an almost 60 year old antique!
Please refer to picture #4. On the right side of the bell you can see a deep scratch. The scratch is very obvious to the eyes. This is the worst sign of age on the horn so I wanted to specifically notate it. In the pictures under the description you can find many close ups.
I wanted to mention, this saxophone has very very bright shiny lust and bling to it, this shininess in addition to my photo lights, and the curved edges of the sax make the horn very reflective to photo. In the hands this horns silver looks thick and lush, with deep engravings. In the photos the silver sorta looks shiny and you miss alot of the depth and color tone. While holding the horn in my hands its 1000% more beautiful then the pictures convey!
If you have been waiting for the right King Super 20 to come around THIS IS THE ONE! It doesn't get ANY better then this mythological unicorn of a King!
Please do not hesitate to buy and pay over I will ship ASAP upon payment!
