VIKING INSTRUMENTS INTRODUCES NEW MODEL M21 SWING SONIC TENORS

The Viking M21 Swing Sonic will be completed in Taiwan on January 2nd and shipped out that week to the USA.The Gloger solid high density silver necks have been completed and are being shipped the same week. I'm having Custom super 20 key guards option with white rollers manufactured to follow for final assembly in the next couple weeks. Pictures & sound clips coming soon!

Viking Instruments is finishing up the details on a new vintage style jazz horn made up of 2 very different materials. This model is called the M21 SWING SONIC and will come in two configurations material wise. The idea was to make a 21st century Super 20 Silver Sonic style horn with materials that sound, vibrate, and look fantastic...all at a reasonable price.

This tenor will cut and project, with a rich, open sound.. and still have the core we all look for. We feel the nickel silver will amp up the feed back behind the horn and also bring more to the table in regards to projection in loud situations.

The first M21SNB deluxe silver package will be featuring power, projection, and clarity...all with a solid core.
