  • Comments:

    This is a lovely instrument. Light in weight; deep in voice with an air resonance close to E, it has a typical Romanillos sound with deep bass, strong middle and a very clear, singing treble reminding me much more of some of the mid and late-70's Romanillos than those from the later 80's & 90's. Really lovely.
