The King has been set free and accorded its own sub-forum!

Thanks to the Administrative forces that be.....

First alto and tenor were Super 20's. I destroyed both of them by way of horrible decisions. Beautiful instruments.

YES! I, too, am happy to see the King area afforded the status it deserves. The few S20s and 613 Clevelands I test-played from 1967 to 1974 (high school and college days) were all excellent players, both altos and tenors. I visit SOTWF regularly, but rarely remembered to read in KING because it was a bit of a hassle to get to it. Perhaps more people will post in this section now, due to ease of finding it, too.

Thanks, Hurling!

We were surprised by the oversight on our part.

I never noticed because I normally just use the "new posts" link.

The moderation team and Harri are always open to suggestions and are happy that we were able to assist with this change.

Enjoy!

Come see the injustice inherent in the system!

This seems like a good thing. I fear however that this will only further encourage the persecution of us poor Cleveland players by our elitist, Super20weilding, overlords. :D

Actually, H. N. White "King" had it's own sub forum all along, it was simply tucked under the A to Z listing of makers instead of "out there" with the other big boys like Conn, Martin Buescher etc.

I just moved it to it's new location after Ed (Hurlingfrootmig) and I mulled it over after getting the excellent suggestion from a fellow SOTW member.

Long story short, I'm glad such a small tweak gives so much joy! :D

BTW;
King, like Martin , made great horns pretty much across the board whatever the model name engraved on the bell IMO. There secondary line of horns were often better than a few of the other maker's first line models throughout their history.

A fellow King fan.
