A great sax for players wanting character and individuality in looks & sound.
A fully professional instrument with a tone reminiscent of the old Conn and Buescher saxes of the 1940s and a vintage look to match.
A great "Vintage" finish on one of the World's great saxes. Each sax is unique as it is left in it's raw state, tarnished, unpolished with seams showing. It is still beautifully engraved with "SX90R Vintage" on the bell and lacquered so the finish is smooth to the touch and will not deteriorate. The keywork has a matt steel grey finish with grey pearl buttons. The outfit even includes a "vintage" style rectangular case covered in cloth with stitched leather ends.
A few SX90R features that set it aside from it's competitors include:
Rolled tone holes - The rolled tone holes perform like miniature bell flares enhancing sound projection through every tone hole. They also give a softer feel and prolong pad life.
A larger bell and bow section - up to 30% larger giving the sax it’s characteristic BIG sound.
Adjustable palm keys – many players are dissatisfied with the fixed position of palm keys and fit risers to compensate.
G# key lifter - so it never sticks – solving the most common saxophone problem.

The SX90R is long established as one of the World's best saxes...and just a little different from it's main competitors. While others followed the French route, Keilwerth developed along the more vintage American lines of Conn & Buescher. The end result is a sax that feels a bit bigger in your hands - well, because it is! Don't worry, you soon get used to it and the benefits in sound are literally huge! To hear what a Keilwerth can do have a listen to Dave Liebman, James Moody, Nick Brignola, Ernie Watts, and Kirk Whalum. Phill (Sax.co.uk)
