HN White King alto saxophone
Recently I won a 1925 (?) H.N. White alto sax on eBay for $200. Original case, mouthpiece, leather neckstrap, and even vintage corkgrease and a box of used ricos (25 for $24.45)!
The price on the box of reeds may indicate the last time it was played, but somebody loved and played this horn alot. It is well cared but appropriately worn. The mouthpiece has a huge dent from teeth, and the case covered with vintage stickers from various locations.
My question is whether the horn is worth fixing up. It is not currently playable but basically just needs a repad and minor adjustments. The Serial number is 106XXX.
In the meantime, it is beautiful and interesting piece of history and I am very glad to have it.
Thank you for your thoughts!
