Anyone know how King priced the SML stencil Marigaux relative to the Zephyr and the Super 20? Also, what was the duration of the business relationship between King and SML?
OK, let me clarify...what I meant to ask is about "back in the day"; how did the price of the Marigaux(tenor) compare to the Zephyr and Super 20. More than? less than? same as?Not very long, maybe a decade or so, I believe.
You didn't mention Tenor or Alto. A Marigaux Tenor in fine shape goes for around $1600-2000.
I have to say, I had one here a while back...and it was really friggin' superb. Put it next to the two Rev.D's and it stood up to 'em quite nicely (not identical in tone, but just as nice in tone).
I've seen King Marigaux saxes as early as 1968, and SaxPics suggests the last SML saxophones (in 1981) were mostly stenciled for King.Also, what was the duration of the business relationship between King and SML?
