This is my personal horn. I bought it from the original owner who used it for only 2 years before putting it in the closet for decades. Only 1 pad has been replaced. The rest are all still original, and are in top condition.

My tech had a Hohner President that had been in an accident and had become a parts horn. I was able to buy the neck from him, so I now have 2 necks for this sax. The 2 necks have very different sounds, and the sax almost sounds like 2 different horns. Both play in tune. The original neck has a much more focused sound. Personally, I prefer the replacement neck. However, it is a much more "modern" sound, and not what the President was supposed to sound like.

This horn not only has a the high D# key, but also a high F# key. That was a custom order at the time. It is inline with the left palm keys, and not located where saxophones normally have them.
