This is the pre Chu Berry vintage that features rolled toneholes and split bellkeys. The tone is incredibly fat and resonant with a warm upper register and huge bottom end.

This tenor is physically excellent with NO dents and NO previous dentwork. There are NO resoldered joints on the horn.

This tenor has a big and robust sound that is ideal for traditional jazz or more aggressive blues and R&B. This tenor has a Huge... HUGE sound!!!!
