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.
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!
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.
