This one has a big open bore with a nice beehive type bell at the end. There is lots of bass and volume and this one likes to got fast but is just as comfortable playing slow ambient styles. I love these higher keys with big bores as it is a nice mix of lows and highs. Lots of character to the stalk with some added inlaid turquoise throughout.
This is a beautiful older stalk that has a tremendous bell just a hair under 8″. Amazing shape and fast taper that sits perfectly on the floor when you play. The longer neck allows for easier overtones and the backpressure is nice and strong requiring hardly any breath to get it going. The vocals are clear and loud and really project out of its big bell. Being an older stalk there were many bug holes which I have inlaid turquoise throughout for added beauty. With that and the striking mouthpiece this is not only a great player but a beautiful piece of art as well.
