Keilwerth built the SX90R to be a sonic powerhouse. With its unique enlarged bow and bell sections it creates that big, dark vintage sound reminiscent of the great Conn and Buescher saxophones of the 1940's. This variation of the SX90R family features a black lacquered nickel-silver body finished with a smooth surface that will not deteriorate and the silver-plated keys have natural mother of pearl touches.

The "R" designation in SX90R reflects that the tone holes are rolled and flared to contribute to greater projection, while giving a softer feel and extending pad life. Recognizing that hand size and finger length vary among players, the SX90R features adjustable palm keys for the ultimate in ergonomics allowing the player to set the ideal reach. To round out its smooth operations, the SX90R includes a G# key lifter that alleviates stickiness, the most common saxophone problem, and arguably making it the most thoughtfully designed tenor built for getting down to the business of producing professional music.
