This is a Lorenzo Sansone built by Geyer in a raw finish. This instrument is from the 1950s and is in great shape considering the age. The valves are original, and compression is fair but still performs at a VERY high level. This instrument projects well, and would be a great horn for any level of player.
Carl Geyer hand-built horns in his Chicago shop. His distinctive horns, along with his repair service, made his shop the place to go for all instrument service. John Barrows remarked, "His horns embody the skill and inventiveness acquired over the years, the uncompromising integrity of workmanship, and above all, the element of concern and love that delineate the true creative genius."
