Depending on where you live it may be less expensive to have the existing/known tenor repadded and put into GPC than it would to purchase a new/unknown instrument.
Being the parent of 'musicians' I would suggest that you take the King to your favorite tech for an estimate. While you're waiting have your son try a few of the 'student' model horns they have in stock. Be sure he's using his own mouthpiece for the try outs.
Compare the sound/feel of the new vs current, and the prices.
I know we only want the best for our children, but sometimes the 'best' comes looking like an old King Cleveland with a new set of pads.
That's only my opinion. As the parent of this child, the decision is all yours. :)
