Julius Keilwerth presents the new Shadow SX90R JK3401-5B2 Tenor Saxophone. With a Black Nickel Plated Body made from Nickel Silver, silver plated keys and sophisticated engraving on body and bow this saxophone not only has an extraordinary appearance, it also features a new, ergonomically adapted keywork.
The new Keilwerth Shadow saxophone combines the advantages of nickel silver with those of a black nickel plated finish. Nickel silver adapts to and conducts changing frequencies faster than other material, resulting in a very direct response and a well centered and extremely powerful sound. Another important advantage is the Reduced Weight and the High Stability. In combination with the black nickel plating, a completely new sound spectrum is created.
The top saxophone for those who are looking for something exceptional!
