This is an original model King Voll-True Alto Saxophone model made by the HN.White company between 1930-1932. The instrument is in great condition throughout, especially bearing in mind the age!
Introduced in 1930, the Voll-True models claimed no less than 22 improvements upon the previous 'King' model that preceded it. Many of these changes were tone hole size and position tweaks, especially on the lower tube, all aimed at improving intonation and evenness of tone across the range.
The layout and design have a unique character and the instrument blows nicely and is reminiscent of that older vintage American horns. Fairly direct and punchy when required, this would be great for someone playing classic jazz or swing and wanting that vintage look, sound and feel.
The instrument is silver plated with a satin style finish. It has been fully checked and set-up in our workshop prior to sale which ensures mechanically it's in excellent order and ready to play and enjoy. If you're looking for something a little outside the mainstream with a unique character and sound, this could be just the ticket.
