This pre-owned horn has a great compression reading of 0.9. The body itself is in fair/good condition, no major dents, some dings throughout and lacquer wear. About 80% of the lacquer is intact though, and it plays very well. The rose brass is a nice, warmer alternative to the standard Nickel 8D's out there.
