I'm looking for info on an old King alto I just picked up on eBay. It is a King Voll TONE horn, which I can't find info about anywhere. When I bid on it, I figured the seller was just mixing up the name Voll True, but when it arrived, sure enough "Voll Tone" is stenciled right there on the bell!
The only thing I could find through Google was an old forum thread, which can be seen here:
The poster seemed as confused as I was, but there is little info in the responses. Most seem to think (s)he was just misreading the name.
I posted another thread on that website, but haven't gotten any substantive responses.
I also posted many photos in the thread I began on saxontheweb, which can be found here:
(Scroll down for photos).
Visually, It looks to me like it's very similar to a Voll True I, but I'd love for more expert eyes to take a look.
Does anyone know anything about the history of this horn? Was Voll Tone an early name for the Voll True? Or was it a step-up or step-down horn? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
