Keilwerth SX90R Professional Alto Saxophone
Essential to the rich sound trademark of Keilwerth saxophones, the SX90R tenor saxophone has a large bell diameter, which also increases projection of sound. The neck of the instrument is hydraulically formed, which facilities easy response and good intonation--the ability to play in tune. The SX90R has rolled tone holes, which provide more surface for the pads to cover and seal, avoiding leaks. However, rolled tone holes are a little more prone to sticky keys, usually avoided by cleaning the tone holes and pads regularly. The key buttons are made from mother of pearl for a smooth feel and nice appearance. The Keilwerth SX90R tenor saxophone is also available with a black nickel finish and in their Shadow model, a gorgeous silver-black nickel-plated finish with silver plated keys and black pads.
