Early 1950's King Zephyr alto, ser#322k dates it to approx 1952, was King's standard at that time, so similar in design and body that it is affectionately known as the poor man's Super 20. Lacquer is original but spotty and has many fine scratches, with a nice brown patina on the bell engravings area and neck, at about 60-70% coverage. These are very strong horns with a medium (not too dark / not too bright) sound, but flexible with different mouthpieces. Comes in vintage case. Currently missing a key guard and the neck screw...I have exact replacements. It will get a complete rebuild with our "Vintage Standard" set up, Prestini NS tan lambskin pads and flat metal reso's. h to a Selmer.   I will repad it, with a Conn-style, french standard repad (aka, a vintage rebuild, a 899.00 rebuild+lacquer stripping).
