You are viewing an extraordinary find. Needless to say by the shape of the pads it was not played a lot. It plays great in all registers as the original pads are in excellent shape and totally seal.These are factory installed pads. Look at the pictures: you'll see the crispness of the engraving and the quality of the pads. There is some patina forming on the body, look at pictures carefully and you'll see it.
When I've played this horn, for me, it's like I'm transported back in time to 1939 when the horn was manufactured. And any questions please let me know? Stay well, and best wishes: Harley.
