A King Feast

I am lucky enough to live down the street from Brian from GetASax.com, and every once in a while we find that between the two of us we are in temporary possession of an unusually full grouping of a particular type of saxophone.  Last time, it was a Conn night.  This time, it was Kings.  Between the two of us (mostly him, but I did have the tenor Zephyr Special which he didn’t have one of) we had enough Zephyr Specials and Super 20s and even a Saxello to cover the soprano part, and even a Powell Silver Eagle, which is based on the Super 20 to take some rather amazing photos, if you are into this sort of thing.  Enjoy!

 

Note: Some of the photos are iffy, sorry about that.  Some of these horns were about to head to their new owners, and the time and place we were able to meet had not-awesome lighting.
