David Brian mako B (HLM-61) SOLD


Out of stock

A low pitched, slow burner instrument with great playing qualities: the backpressure is medium to low, the deep sound is full-bodied and rich; even though low keyed instrument are usually require experienced players, this instrument is surprisingly easy to play. I recommend this rare, deep mako for collectors who are looking for something really unique.
