Appearance, ‘cosmetics’:   generally quite good condition;  there are a few superficial dings, mostly on the bell flare, and its lacquer is worn or scratched in only the usual, expected places and where remedial work has been done.  Overall, there are no ‘acoustical’ or playing problems, and its rotors are in good shape, with excellent compression.

General comments: a fine player with a clear, ‘ringing’ sound and minimal tonal difference between the Bb and the F alto sides. This is exactly the horn you need for those Bach high cantatas in F or G, and many Haydn symphonies with horns in G, A, C alto or Bb alto!
