This is the one, the best Series 2 King Super 20 alto I've ever played (as you can hear in the demo video below). This alto has an unbelievably resonant, crisp, full sound, the key action is light and fast and precise, the intonation is excellent from top to bottom, and it just sings with every note! It was made in 1953 and features original lacquer, full pearl side keys, and the sterling silver double-socket neck is stamped with the matching serial number. Compared to the pre-305000 Series 1 and 1a Kings, this Series 2 (the last of the full pearls) has the updated G# mechanism, curved side E key, and other improvements.
When you play this one you'll know why Cannonball Adderley and Charlie Parker chose to play Kings. Demo: King Super 20 alto 333xxx - YouTube. Video will open in a new window. It plays beautifully as you can hear - I can't say enough about how fun this horn is to play.The pads are a mix of new and older pads with a lot of life left in them and it plays nicely from top to bottom , and as always you should plan to have your tech adjust it after you receive it. It's a lovely sax with a nice patina from honest wear over the years, and the horn shows some scratches, small dings, and lacquer wear. The only signs I see of past repairs are a resoldered foot on the Low C key guard and some dents removed on the bow. It comes in a lightweight case in good working condition that fits the horn very snugly. Please see all the photos to get to know the exact condition of this remarkable instrument.
