This Radio Improved alto is in very good condition and has no evidence
of any past major repairs. Bell flare, bottom bow, body tube and neck
are all in very good shape. Although the horn was relacquered in the
past, the entire engraving is still clearly visible - a sign the horn
was not buffed hard in the preparation process for the lacquering job.
This horn comes with a new overhaul by Shelly Tanabe. It is setup with
Pisoni Pro pads and seamless metal resonators and perfectly regulated.
The intonation is quite good. We are selling the horn on behalf of a
Broadway player who sometimes used it in the pit. Mechanically, the
horn is easy to get around.
There is a good reason that more and more players are discovering the
Radio Improved horns these days. The sound and the resonance of the
horn when you play it is just amazing! It is a round and well balanced
tone, with loads of projection. It has a beautiful balance of colorful
mid-tone and smooth brightness. There is an immediacy to the sound with
the full resonance of the horn easily acitivated.
When these horns are properly setup, they are inspiring to play!
