This Gold Plated King Saxello Soprano Saxophone Serial #71150 is in absolutely mint condition. The engraving on the bell reads “King Saxello Made by The H.N. White Co. CLEVD O.” surrounded by scrolling leaves. In the pictures you may notice that the horn sometimes appears more silver, the reason behind this is due to the vintage King Saxello gold plating. The instrument gives off a beautiful gold sheen in the light as opposed to looking solid gold and makes the horn look gorgeous and very classy. The serial number can be found on the back of the body and reads “Pat. PEND’G 71150.” There is a very light amount of speckle wear on the horn in a few spots but overall it’s in great condition without any dents on the body or bell. It has just come back from our repair technician where the body was cleaned, the pads were replaced as needed and adjusted. Several of the corks were replaced as well. The entire horn has also been adjusted and is currently playing great. It comes in the original case which is in good used condition. It does not come with a mouthpiece. This saxophone is a great player with a vintage tonal quality that is warmer, bigger and richer than modern horns.The saxello’s are becoming more rare and harder to find. Saxello’s have this warm, unique sound that projects forward because of the tipped bell and is an excellent instrument for solo work.
