Lots of horns have buzz. Other horns, sleeper horns, fly under the radar but play better than anyone could dream. This King Zephyr Alto is exactly the latter. You would be hard pressed to find a finer alto.
The King Zephyr has long been considered the 'poor players' Super 20. This could not be any less true if they tried. Incredibly flexible, this alto can go from being sweet and soft to packing a back-of-the-room punch. Made in 1950, this Zephyr features modern key work, a fresh overhaul, and a lightness to the action that allows for a player to move seamlessly around the horn. If you are looking to play at the level of the greats, you might need a horn that's set for royalty. This is that horn.
