Congrats on a great horn! I was just at Ken’s shop today for my annual tune-up on me Keilwerth Shadow tenor! Ken’s a good friend and an amazing tech....I’m incredibly lucky he’s local. Are you near Asheville also or did you travel in the see Ken?Thanks guys! I've now had the 103,000 1962 Mark VI for a couple of months now. Before the trial period was over I had taken this horn to Ken Beason in Asheville, NC to let him check everything out. He said it was a great horn and everything checked out well so I kept it and have been playing it for weeks now. It's a beautiful horn that plays well and sounds great so I am very happy with it.
Ken is a Ninja!I live two hours from Ken Beason. Well worth the drive! What a great guy Ken is! He had to go to China on October 17th to some sort of Expo where he was going to rebuild 4 saxophones and show the Chinese techs his process. So if you were there today I guess he is back from China. I need to set up an appointment to get some of my other horns doctored on. I too feel incredibly lucky to be located (fairly) local to Ken.
