I bought a new black nickel SX90R Keilworth 11 years ago from WWBW and it has been my favorite instrument ever since. It is so well built it has never even been to a repair shop despite 3 hours a week in two rock bands. I liked the stock mouthpiece so much I never switched to metal. I use V16's for rock and Java's for blues. It is free blowing and powerful. Outstanding intonation. I can't play it softly enough for classical, but why would you want to? The high F# key is a stretch to hit, but a must for rock. I am a big guy and play with the tenor directly in front. The right hand ergonomics are a little cramped for me, but I love the sound too much to put it down.
I've owned this horn for nearly eighteen years now. Though I've played saxes of many makes and models I have yet to find one I think compares to the SX90R. It has amazing intonation all up and down the scale and, depending on the mouthpiece and reed, can readily play in any musical setting, everything from bright and brassy to a rich, dark whisper. Whether I push hard into the altissimo or carry the low end, I get a true tone and a full sound. And, if you care about such things, this is one of the most beautiful horns on the planet with the black nickel finish and the gorgeous engraving. For my money, you can't go wrong with the SX90R.
This horn has a huge, gutsy sound that breaks through if you want it to. A modern throwback to the 30's and 40's. Throw an open jazz metal mouthpiece (8 or 9) on this thing with a medium to high baffle and start ripping! You can grab all kinds of overtones with the right mouthpiece and reed combo. Throw a hard or fibre reed on it and the altissimo comes out easily. Some reviewers say that it is a little different. That may be the case to some, but it seemed more manageable to me than Selmer-styled horns. It works well with my larger hands. It only took about 10 minutes to adjust. It has a solid feel, with precise fingering and tuning and even volume throughout the entire register. Free-blowing, not restricted. Want a soft, sultry sound? Use a less aggressive plastic mouthpiece and the sub-tones ooze out. I should have purchased one long ago. My Martin has been relegated to a backup horn. I never thought that would happen. Great Case.
