String Linkage and tapered brass rotors. It comes in a nice fabric covered “solid” case with a front pocket which is large enough for music but not a Folio. Nirschl1The lacquer is 95% plus. Its a full double, not a compensator, (which would be little lighter) set up for younger players, or someone who just wants a smaller horn.
