Original finish Tone King alto. Excellent German build and JK lineage. It currently has no pads in it and will get those during the rebuild (ha!). original lacquer, nickel plated keys and the plastic pants guard is intact!
The Keilwerth altos play a little brighter than their tenor counterparts do, by comparison. They are still "vintage" and "sweet", but consider these to have some upper treble 'cut' in their skills.
CASE: yes. Currently in a Yamaha 23 case. (I have a proper JK case paired with a The Martin Alto that I wouldn't mind swapping around should you prefer.)
PADS: none installed. Can not test sax.
