King 1952 ‘Super 20’ Bb Tenor, Full Pearl, #325k (Archived)

SOLD - From Sarge's Collection: Nice original lacquer super 20, with the Serial number 325,692. These have a lot of nice features, like pearls on all the keys and Sterling Silver, sleeve style neck, but what i really love is the rich, big tone. Super 20's are more or less divided up into 3 categories, early, middle and late production, this one falls in the middle and has a great balance of sound. The King horns sure get my vote and i gig with them often. This one was rebuilt with thick brass resonators, oversized, I believe originally from a TM setup.

Conn 1942 ’10M’ Bb Tenor, #306,8xx (Archived)

SOLD - Sarge's Collection: Prime era 10m in original lacquer, S# 306,843. the thing is 30-m's and 10-m's are so different , i felt like i need to have both... the 30m is more of a jazz horn and the 10m works better for my rockin' R&B stuff. It has never seen any notable body damage, although some minor dents may have been rolled out before i got her. Rolled tone holes, Naked Lady engraving. The neck is slightly pulled down, i corrected that and eventually i will do a Conn Style Premium Rebuild, with Saxgourmet Kangaroo pads and flat metal resonators. The premium upgrade, with Teflon and Ultrasuede, will really do a lot to smooth out the action on her. Chadd comments: This one is a real screamer. Setup with oversized flat metal resonators, and the Black Saxgourmet Roo pads. Just the real deal here, everything you'd expect from the fable of 10M's.
