  • Comments:

    Romanillos instruments need little introduction of course and those who have ordered one, have a long time to wait.
    This one is very enjoyable to play with a warm treble sound, deep bass from its F# air resonance and very good overall balance. It has been played in the time since it was purchased so has a mature, sweet character.
    A fine instrument and a rare buying opportunity.
