Newly designed neck receiver

The new professional style neck receiver allows the player to project a more even tone.

Re-designed for a smoother and quicker response.

Silicon treated leather pads

Silicon treatment helps protect the leather pads from moisture.

Blue steel needle springs

Blue steel springs provide a faster, more sensitive key response.

Acoustic annealing of the body

This process of heating and cooling called annealing gives the metal optimum density for superior tone.

Adjustable thumb rest

Thumb rest allows for precise and comfortable hand and fingering positions.

Tilting style low Bb key

The position, height, angle, and shape of the left hand pinky keys have been re-designed for comfort and response.
