The King Saxello is great fun in many ways. If you want a soprano sax to play around on, it’s very comfortable, since it hangs more vertically on the strap. The tipped bell means you can hear yourself when you play. The size with the semi-curve is nice too – not too small, not too large. The tone is rich, medium dark, full and complex. Totally different from the more narrow, almost nasal soprano tone on some more modern sopranos. This horn has original finish on body tube and bell and most of the keys, and the plating is touched up on several key touches, like the left hand pinky keys and palm key touches etc. Not a big deal, but worth noting. Pads are old, so plan on a repad. No serious past repairs, and no present damage. It’s a great horn, and priced to sell. King Saxello sopranos are hard to find usually (though I currently have three!) and are also a good investment, as they are among the best vintage sopranos for the above reasons. Grab one now, while they are priced like a new student saxophone! They won’t be forever.
