saxophone, flutes and lil' bit of clarinet
Thanks for posting that.
I'm not saying that King didn't made any King Super 20 Silversonic w brazed tonholes in 83-84. I believe you. But the information and sales promotion to shops (here in Sweden) from King Musical Instruments Inc, was brochures like this (King Super 20 aka 2414K and 2416K).thanks, but this brochure doesn't mention the Super 20
"Eastlake" disappeared from the King saxes around '74. (Oddly enough, King brasswinds [with one exception] lost it in 1970. Clevelands switched en masse somewhere in there.)anyway regardless of when exactly this happened , ’75, ’81, ’85 at a certain point they are engraved with USA and no longer have the Eastlake Ohio denomination, whatever the significance of this
I am confused. Yes, there is this line which doesn't seems to be part of the brochure, but it is added later on. However, in both of the brochure posted, it refers the 2414 and 2416 as King Super 20 professional model.In case someone can't read Thomsax's attachment, here is what it says:
King Musical Instruments, Eastlake Ohio
March 28, 1985
I am sorry to advise you that we at King are no longer manufacturing tenor saxophones or alto saxophones, and the Super 20 tenor saxophone has been eliminated from our line of saxophones. We only distribute a student model alto and tenor saxophone and these instruments are manufactured for us by our parent company.
This guy was selling one for dirt cheap:Last month, I was very close to buy a King Super 20 with USA engraving, but I eventually pass on it. It is even cheaper than a early King Zephyr, so, I am very interested to know how these late King Super 20, both USA engraving or 2416, play, and how do they compared to the early King Zephyr and King Super 20 (Cleveland and Eastlake). Any owner out there interested to post some sound clips?
