Original lacquer is about 80% giving horn a darkened honey - like coloring….cool, vintage nameplate design….very low wear to entire horn - especially nice, fast valves…..end dump and waterkey on third slide.....some evidence on bell bow from old repair....minor dings around horn do not affect playability, sound or appearance.….typical - great Besson quality - medium bore (.453)….....playing evenly throughout three octaves…..reminiscent of the Martin Committee or Imperial models - a nice big player!
