Description: Saxophone - Hawkes & Son Tenor Saxophone, c. 1928
There are no pictures available for this saxophone
c. 1928 Hawkes & Son Tenor Saxophone. Made in London.
For sale due to having too many saxophones! This sax plays very well and is in good condition for an instrument of this vintage, and has a lovely smooth tone. Intonation is good, but requires thought at the top end as would be expected. The neck has had a professional repair, which is still sound. Still a fair amount of lacquer, a lovely deep gold. The Bell guard for the Bb and B pads needs a re-solder, but this doesn't affect playing the horn. Could do with a new screw for the neck clamp. For sale without m/piece, but with strap.
Location Sheffield, UK. Feel free to arrange a viewing if you're close, but i'll post at cost price if you're elsewhere. Please email any questions or to request high resolution photos.
