I too think you have one really nice sax there, and I am sure you are enjoying it too. I am sure you will find a lot here on this web sight that you will enjoy. I am playing an alto sax after not playing for about 45 yrs. I am from Brenham, Tx. so we should meet some day….Ridge
Nice! I’m a bit surprised that more professional tenor players from the 50s Rock and Roll era didn’t play that horn (was the Silversonic even available back then?). I know Cannonball Adderly played on a King Super 20 alto but I don’t recall many top notch alto players from the 50s and 60s playing that model either. Could it be that the King Super 20 horns were overlooked with the Selmer Mark VI becoming so popular back then?
I started out playing in the mid 70’s and even tho my first purchase was a King student model, I really wanted my next horn to be a Mark 6. So in my opinion yes, the Kings were just overlooked because of the Selmers.
