This King Zephyr Series I alto saxophone is in mint condition. It has been completely overhauled and re-laquered with our custom vintage lacquer. It is darker than most modern lacquers to give the horn a more authentic feel. It has been cleaned, adjusted, and re-padded, so it look amazing, and it plays very well. There are no dents or dings on the horn it is in beautiful shape. It also comes with the triple neck ring, a signature of the King Zephyr models. The serial number is “209874” making this a Zephyr Series I circa 1937-1938 vintage horn. The Art Deco engraving on the bell is gorgeous and super crisp. The engraving goes all the way down the bell and the words “King Zephyr Model made by The H.N. White Co. Cleveland Ohio” are prominently displayed on the bell. This horn comes with the original double socket/sleeve style neck, which is in great shape with no evidence of a pull down with the matching serial number. It does come with the original sleeve style neck plug in excellent condition. It comes in a good used replacement case. No mouthpiece is included. This alto saxophone has that classic King Zephyr feel. It has a big, focused sound, excellent intonation, and superb overtones.
