Saxophone/KING Tenor Sax


I have a KING tenor sax serial #N198423. It has 'KING' in 3/4" letters with a crown above it on the bell and '615' in 1/2" immediately below KING. I don't see any other markings. From what I've read I get the impression that KING saxophones are a desirable instrument.

What can you tell me about mine?


Sorry for the late reply, I have been pretty sick lately.

This particular horn was manufactured in the early 1970's as a student horn. They are pretty decent horns with a good center to the tone and easy to play if setup correctly. Prior to this time they were known as "King Cleveland 615". Current market value $350-$400.00

Hope this helps.
