    I recently pick up a 1938 King Zephyr Alto, in brass. The key work appears to be silver /silver plate since it shows some black tarnishing. It has a double tenon type neck in brass and triple strap hook. Any info on this model? It seems to be an intermediate version between the all lacquer...

    I have a Zephyr alto 320xxx that has a few quirks that I am wondering about. 1. It has U.S. engraved on the bell (I know it's a former military horn, but this might help explain the other quirks) 2. The neck and body serial numbers don't match (off by 37 numbers) 3. It has no triangular clothes...

    I saw an auction on feeBay for a SilverSonic that was (is) missing the neck, but it was way over-priced IMO. The auction description said to given them any offer, that no offers would be automatically refused. After starting at a very low offer we worked it to the point I think is a very good...

If we can generalise about the...
