Compact design, great handling, easy to play with safe resistance in pp and mf, great adaptability, etc. The 293X-S Custom Special focuses well and has great power and carrying capabilities in all dynamic ranges. Originally this model was conceived of after constructing a W 293 X with a Bb crook. After comprehensive studies Ricco recognized the potential of this idea. The higher resistance offers much more safety in the high range which is not available with most of the current horns on the market. The result is a new double horn which offers that amazing 'German' sound and feel. Pope Repair stocks this model with lacquer, detachable bell, and one waterkey. Case is not included.
