Please note that there are a few stencils with the "King" name on them that were not made by the HN White Company:
- Pre-1916 Kings are Kohlert or Evette & Schaeffer stencils
- The King Tempo is a Keilwerth stencil
- The King Lemaire is a Kohlert or Amati stencil (probably Kohlert). The name is from King's association with SML: Strasser-Marigaux-Lemaire.
- The King Marigaux is an SML stencil
- "The New King" and "Toneking" are model names for a Keilwerth series of horns
- "Recording King" was a model name for a series of stencil horns, mainly made by Martin
