David Brian mako C (HLM-42) SOLD


Out of stock

A highly-resonant mako with spacious internal chamber, conical shape, and meditative sound full of harmonics. Due to the medium to low backpressure, this instrument is suitable for slow, melodic playing style.
There is a repair on the middle-part of the body, a hole patched up with wax (see on the photo).
An excellent instrument and superb sound.
