Description: Saxophone - King Super 20 Silversonic alto sax SN# 364,xxx (1958)

For sale: Professionally used King Super 20 Silversonic alto sax, SN# 364,xxx (1958, Cleveland OH), with solid silver bell and double-sleeved, solid silver neck. No dents on horn and neck. Bell engraving with gold inlay, gold wash in bell. About 75% original (guaranteed) lacquer left. Most of the original lacquer almost gone only on the right side of the never dented silver bell (see pic). Pads seal tight, and have metal resonators. Horn needs no adjustments or repair. A bright and very sweet but powerful singer with spontaneous response at low B-flat and altissimo.
This alto is BY FAR the best player among following Super 20s I've owned over the years: SN# 382,xxx and 379,xxx brass bell/silverneck, and 379,xxx Silversonic (all Cleveland OH horns for response reason). I've never seen a pre-1960 Silversonic alto on ebay, and "window shop" there weekly. You can test play the Silversonic in Chicago/Evanston. You will be amazed by the sound and free flowing key work of this particular horn. Serious interestees, I can give the tel# of Dave Sanborn's sax doc in the area, who played the horn.
