Lacquer/ Cosmetics: generally very good; just a few small scuffs and scratches are purely cosmetic issues that do not detract from the horn’s excellent playing qualities.

Further details: this ‘acoustically superb’ horn is a lovely player with great fluency over the whole range, a concentrated, ringing sound and a very secure high register.
