(On Consignment, offsite with owner - Plays great)
These are a French brand with the tone of an American sax: Conn + King + Martin + Keilwerth(German). It has the huge, fat, SML tone. These are in the top 3 for BOLDEST tones and harmonics!
This beloved SML GM(Gold Medal) II era tenor with all the features that are loved and sought(except the I vs II rolled tone holes change).
CASE: Yes, TBD. If you desire an upgrade, we can talk about a Protec XL that will fit the massive bell.
Don't forget all the SML features like screw adjustments and "Articulated G# on/off lever", gold springs, and screw adjustments too. These do have a longer neck for positioning and a slight upward angle; both normal on this model. This example has a custom octave thumb rest for the owner as the sheet metal original style ones can be uncomfortable. This has comfort! I support this improvement for easy of playing.
PADS: work done elsewhere, it has newer, tan pads with domed metal resos. They show mild use but have many years of life left. I did recent maintenance for the owner before listing.
