I own one of these but when I purchased it used, it was stuffy and the pads needed replacing. The lacquer was about 60% and I thought it needed some serious tender loving care. After I overhauled it and got it silver plater, it had a more open sound which reminded me of the jazz sound of the 50's. Very bold, focused, and free-blowing. If you do get one, get it overhauled and you'll notice that it truly has a bolder sound unlike the newer tenors that sound too mellow, or too bright.
