Vintage hard rubber from 1920/30s. Originally it was paired with a New Wonder . It has a large Chamber and I just had Bob Carpenter open it up to 0.080". It plays really easy. I would say it sounds typical of a stuffy, vintage tone but after Bob's work, it can cut through in the high register--still not as loud of a mpc as others. no ligature.
