  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi All, I'm a woodwind tech based in Atlanta GA. I'm overhauling a '67 King Super 20 Silversonic Tenor and am trying to source some missing parts to complete the job. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find key guard feet for low Eb & C as well as key guard screws. Thanks in advance. I...
  2. Pads and Resonators
    I'm going to have my Super-20 tenor overhauled soon. What type of pads are considered the best these days? Not interested in saving a few bucks, I want these to last a long time with minimum adjustment. As a starting point, I generally like harder pads and I have reso-tech domed metal...
  3. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I recently acquired a 1946 king super 20, beautiful horn with a monstrous lh pinky table. Is there anyone here in the UK who could modify this horn with a slightly more modern lh pinky table design? Even just an extension to make moving from Bb to C# easier would do.
  4. Tenor mpc
    Are these mouthpieces worth the asking price? Does any model sound like a dukoff? Do they play well on a vintage sax like a super-20?

    Hi all! Does anyone know the standard specs for the King Super 20 Silversonic Tenor (late 70s serial)? Including key opening size? I got a great deal on a Super 20 however it's heavily modded (perhaps to fix intonation?). I'm looking to open it up and get the resonators taken off.

    Hey folks, I bought a Cleveland Super 20 Bari (400k) recently, which needs an overhaul. What pads and especially resos do you recommend? Those baris are not very common especially in my area, so local repairmen aren`t experienced with them. Right now small flat metal resos are installed- don`t...

    Hi everyone. I am specifically interested in what players' think of how (if much at all) the different series' of King Super 20's compare to one another- especially the Tenors, I'm primarily thinking the I-IV series Cleveland horns, (not an eastlake hater btw!). If we can generalise about the...

    Hey everyone, So i was going through some forum posts and was just wondering what the overall difference is between the regular Super 20 and the silversonic version other than the obvious, that the silversonic is made with silver. Playing wise what are the differences?
  9. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    Hi folks, since about 6 month I try hard to improve my altissimo. I play on an early King Super 20 tenor (285xxx) with silver neck which is well set up. The horn had a full overhaul and is in great playing condition. There are no leaks all over the range of the horn and response from low...

    I'm interested to get some thoughts on the early (late 40's-approx 1950) king super 20 Tenors (as saxpics says the series 1-1a horns from inception to around 305xxx) My reason for asking is I've seen some of these earlier amber like finished horns for sale and demoed recently online - they sound...

    This seems like a steal, whats up with the seemingly low price? I don't have to make the decision of buying it or not because I can't even afford 900 dollars... but what do you guys think?
  13. King (HN White)
    hello, I would like buy a tenor sax and I found on the web a super king-20 from 1975, serial number 521xxx which costs 1,500 euros. Is this a good deal? Thomas from france

    So a couple days ago, I decided I would try to find a cheap old alto to start messing with, I have a cheap tenor, and play in a few funk bands (as a guitarist mostly, but I want to start playing woodwinds again).. I'm at a couple pawn shops, and end of the day I pick up for $375, a King...
