I have a prime vintage King Zephyr tenor sax (s/n 307xxx) with it's original lacquer. It was just gone over by a qualified tech. All the pads (with flat metal resonators) checked out good, and are sealing well. IT's READY TO PLAY. This sax has some typical lacquer loss and a solder repair where a lower keyguard was re-attached, but no evidence of any dent removal that I can see.
The mechanisms are tight and the horn plays up and down easily with EXCELLENT intonation. It comes with the original brass end plug, double socket neck (with matching serial number) in a cool looking vintage case. The case appears to be from a King Super 20 from the same era and is structurally sound. Also included: a hand made neck bag and matching swab (no mouthpiece). This series of Zephyrs are regarded by many sax experts as the best vintage of the Cleveland made King saxophones.
These are basically the same horn as the King Super 20 from that era, but at a bargain price. This sax has a beautiful dark vintage tone, incomparable to the later Zephyrs and many modern horns being made today.
