Traditionally built with a wooden comb, it has beautifully finished and engraved stainless-steel cover-plates and of course that rich, Marine Band sound. I love the extra-large size (like a Tremolo), which gives it an even richer sound. The only thing I don't like about it is the awkward tuning. Because it is Richter tuning, the draw notes become progressively more "out-of-phase" from the blow notes as you move up the scale. Doing a scale in the higher registers requires a lot of movement.
CAUTION: I have ordered this twice, and both time had to return it because they keep sending the wrong item.

It is supposed to be in the Key of "C" but has this in the Product Info: Item model number: 53/48-G <--- G as in Key of G, not C as title describes.
Additionally, this code of "Item model number: 53/48-G" does point to a Tremelo in G.
