Condition: Good. Patina on brass which can be polished out if desired. Current owner said that there were some inner perturbation rings which are supposed to help with intonation that came out during a cleaning. After extensive playing, I find this to be a great player with excellent intonation. It's my opinion that while such perturbations may help intonation a little bit - it is only by just a small margin. Still, price is reduced substantially to account for this.
Awesome player. Great snappy response, excellent intonation, strong bell note, sweet highs!
