Real smooth & Rich, large chamber S3 model. Script is good. Original Tip measured 0.063" but it received a WWS REFACE to 0.072", it plays really nice and with a bit more focus than the sound file with the 0.055. It reminds me of a S80-C* crossed with a Meyer 5--BUT with more treble power than both. No ligature, but you can ask--one the size of a selmer S80 fits. These are hard to find mpcs and we love them. (this one actually has a 2-3mm longer body{center of mpc} than the 0.072" listed below.) PHOTOS were before the refacing work.
