"TRULY RARE TENOR ROTHOPHONE by Bottali, Milano. Bottali was successor to F.Roth. The successor to Bottali is Orsi. ... EXCELLENT CONDITION IN EVERY RESPECT. Mechanically "tight", though it will need some fine adjustment and regulation. Low B key cup guard needs a new cork bumper. Only a few tiny "dimples"- nickel plating about 98% intact, bright, shiny. ... Pads seem very good to excellent. STAMPED: "19" (below "Milano" on front of bell) - I do not know if this may in fact be the serial number. This tenor Rothophone plays well. ..."
