This is one of those tenors that you almost never see, and certainly not in this kind of condition. This is a super early Top Hat and Cane tenor in original matte silver plate. It still sports the original black rollers on the pinky keys that they used on the earliest ones of these horns. You never see these.
On top of that, almost all of the original silver plate is intact, and the horn is in very clean condition. It has just gotten a full overhaul by Matt Stohrer, who is one of the best techs in the business. If you don’t already know what that means, then the answer is that it plays really really well, and the work feels great under the fingers. The pads will also last a long time because of the way that Matt sets the horn up (combo of adjustment materials and careful pad work).
From a playing perspective, this horn just wails. It has a big, medium bright voice and is very free blowing. It is a powerhouse kind of horn that also has great intonation and easy altissimo. Whether you’re a collector or a player, what more could you want?
