Silver plated Weltklang Tenor Saxophone Great Player
This woodwind is no longer for sale (sold on 2009-11-12)
Price : US $530.00
This is an excellent example of a 1980's vintage Weltklang Tenor saxophone in really nice silver plate.
Weltklang saxophones (especially the tenors and baritones) are known for having a good sound and projection that rivals Martins and Conns from the 1950.
These horns were stencils created Richard Keilwerth of the Keilwerth company for the Weltklang company.
This horn has been recently overhauled and sports all new corks and pads with Selmer style metal resonators. The neck is well matched to the receiver and the key action is as smooth as it was when new.
This horn also features a location mounted on the neck for a Varitone pickup (used in recording studios) a custom thumb rest, and a removed high F# key touch (Please see the pictures).
Most players (including myself) don't use the high F# keytouch - so I am guessing the previous owner was annoyed by it enough to remove it. A good tech could easily add a keytouch back if someone really wanted it back. This horn does include a high F (front F) key as all horns do nowadays.
This horn's serial number is 499xx and this horn IS silver plated (not to be confused with the less expensive nickel plating).
