David Brian mako C# (HLM-41) SOLD


Out of stock

A slow-player mako in the lower key-range. Due to its low backpressure and resonance, it is a quite meditative instrument. Once I poured water through the inside, the sound got rich in overtones, so I would recommend for the future owner to oil the timber in order to reach its real potential.
