Description: Saxophone - Vintage King Zephyr Alto Saxophone
This is a vintage Zephyr alto saxophone. Serial number is 264381. This has just been overhauled (new pads with plastic resonaters, felt and cork). The lacquer is in excellant condition with just some wear on the side Bb key and the high Eb key. There are some scratches as can be expected on an instrument this old and there is an area on the bell around the engraving that looks as though someone deliberately scratched the instrument. See the pictures. There are a few dings on the instrument but nothing major. I did have to have the octave mechanism (arm?, not sure of the technical term) repaired when I bent it, it was soddered for stability. There is a picture of the octave mechanism but I am not sure you can see it. Great sounding instrument.
