One of the greatest tenors ever made - the King Marigaux tenor saxophone made in France by Strasser-Marigaux-Lemaire (SML) for King Musical Instruments in 1974.

It's an SML Gold Medal Mk. II badged "King Marigaux" tenor, the most famous SML stencil.

SML literally recruited the best craftsman from Selmer Paris - the makers of the greatest of the SBA and Mark VI models - to work for them for better pay. Their factory was literally across the street from Selmer in Mantes.

The sound that this King Marigaux tenor makes? The previous owner calls it "controlled fury", as that was the first thing that came to mind when he plays an SML, including this one - ferocious, yet incredibly lush and beautiful. He has gone over this tenor carefully. It plays incredibly from top to bottom. It has the vintage look of the great SBAs and early VIs, but plays better. The pads are in great shape, as are the springs, corks, and felts, accounting for it's great action. The intonation is unmatched. You won't want another tenor after you play this one.

I would be more than happy to have you test play, no hassle, no pressure.
