This is the holy grail of sopranos and for good reason :) They play fantastic and have an amazing sound. This one is in great shape. Original lacquer with 95% remaining. No damage in its life and the bell flair is beautiful. There is some minimal wear from the previous owner playing it and 2 tiny ping dents that we can get out easily. All the pads are still original (or almost all of them) and it still has all the original tonex resonators as well! It does play up and down, but due to the pad age we'd recommend a repad or total overhaul. You won't find one of these in this condition very easy now a days! Contact Simon for more information.
