I am currently looking on Ebay for a saxophone that will fit my every needs.

But, I came across a saxophone, known by the seller as King Limited Edition... No one has bid for it, assuming i guess no one knows what kind it is.

And if it is any help the serial # is 7134936...

Please reply...URGENT!!!

That isn't a classic, vintage H. N. White era King like the much vaunted Zephyr and Super 20s, but a modern era, UMI student horn that is King in name only. Don't bother.

that serial number is pretty high, they moved to eastlake somwhere in the 4xx,xxx's and many of the super 20s were still very good, but it was hit and miss. but 7134936 puts it very late, definitely not king's best period. I don't know much about the limited edition, but i'd bet the money would be better spent on an old zephyr.

This horn wasn't made while the King name was still in the possession of H. N. White, Cleveland or Eastlake eras. This is a modern, UMI Conn/Selmer/Steinway company horn, utilizing the brand name "King" only. Just your run of the mill, mediocre product like the current horns branded Conn, Selmer U.S.A., Buescher etc.
