This incredible horn is almost like it just left the factory.

According to the seller of the horn,

"For sale by The H. N. White Company LLC, this magnificent King Artist Special Soprano Saxophone is a marvel of craftsmanship and quality. This saxophones is in original condition. King H.N. White made soprano saxophones from 1916 to 1940, with Artist level sopranos being among the rarest of the rare. What sets this saxophone apart from other King Artist Special Sopranos is the gold satin finish (more details follow), as most are just gold plated over the entire body of the Saxophone. This saxophone has a real contrast from the engraving to the satin finish, and commands your attention. It looks amazing and is almost 100% perfect. Everything works and is in mint condition for its age.

The gold satin plating is original and 99.9% perfect.

The engraving is perfect.

No scratches.

One key has been repaired see picture seven.

Newly re-padded (where needed) and corked.

Everything is articulated and ready to play.

The case is in good condition. The outside of the case shows some signs of aging, but the inside is in great condition. The purple fabric inside is still plush and vibrant in color, with almost no fading. This case is ready for many more years of service.

The finish on this Saxophone is Artist Special according to the 1927 King Catalog. Artist Special is explained as very heavily gold plated, completely hand-burnished, with extremely rich and beautiful engraving on the bow and bell in brush finish. Mother of pearl inlaid finger tips. The plating is 99.9% perfect, No dents, and everything works perfect.

This Saxophone is in fantastic condition and it is in ready to play condition."
