Many consider the King Zephyr Special to be the most beautiful saxophone ever made. That’s a pretty subjective statement, but it’s hard to deny that several of its unique features help to make it qualify. Like full pearls. The perimeter design of the tone hole guards and the way they show off the pad cup engraving. Not to mention the gorgeous bell engraving. The Zephyr Specials are few and far between and the original silver-plated ones are even more rare.
Then there’s the way they sound. This particular instrument is a monster. Huge. Sonically this one has more power and punch than any Super 20 tenor I’ve ever played. A genuine player with a little bit of honest wear. It’s had a couple of small dents removed and a post or two re-soldered. The body tube is perfectly straight and the neck is lovely. The pads are good and will last several years. It comes with a new Protec case or can be upgraded to the case of your choice
