Big bold, dark and fat, but still with a colorful core. That's why people buy these Top Hat & Cane horns! This one is no exception. It's lived a good life as a players horn and is ready to find it's next home. Original lacquer with 80% left. Has had some past repairs on the bow and the strap hook re-soldered. the neck was pulled down at some point and the brace was re-soldered when it was corrected. Pads are older, but not tons of use on them and the horn still plays up and down. If you are looking for something with a vintage sound on a budget, then this may be the horn for you.
