Pay more attention to the comments in the thread concerning proper set-up. Sharp keys can be set right with proper key height. Mine are no more sharp than any other alto I have, which includes The Martin, Selmer Balanced Action, Martin Indiana, Conn Chu Berry and an old Vito.mann2immond said:Thanks for the Input. I felt a little bit the same. I like the Sound it has, but it is tending to be sharp from g`` and e```(played on the Palmkeys) is quite out of Tune. I was also a little disappointed by the low Notes (low C# down to low Bb), because they are not so easy to play and have some kind of Resistance. Since about 11Years I play a Super Twenty Tenor (299xxx)and on this Instrument the low Notes are absolutely easy to play and they sound wonderfully mellow. So somehow I did expect something similar on this Alto. Now after playing it for a While it seams to me it develops in a good Sense. Maybe this Instrument was not played for a long Time and maybe it is starting to recover some of his Qualitys....
Somewehre in the Comments to "Why are Zephyrs so lame?" someone claimed that the best Zephyrs are between Serialnr 270K and 295K - do you think this is true? Whats the difference of these Instruments to mine?
The Zephyr (and Zephyr Special) was the King pro model that preceeded the Super 20's, which came out within that serial number range alongside the Zephyrs. Some folks maintain at that point the two models were essentially the same; the 20's becoming the new Specials.mann2immond said:Somewehre in the Comments to "Why are Zephyrs so lame?" someone claimed that the best Zephyrs are between Serialnr 270K and 295K - do you think this is true?
