David Brian mako C# (HLM-63) SOLD


Out of stock

A highly-resonant mako with spacious internal chamber, conical shape, and sound full of harmonics. Due to the wide open neck and tapered shape, the backpressure is low, therefore I recommend this great instrument for experienced players. Once you get used to its unique dynamics, this mako is super-easy to play and sings with rich melodics hidden inside.
The mouthpiece is fitted with a mouth insert. An excellent instrument and superb sound, highly recommended for collectors.
