Following my selling of the Grassi Wonderful to a happy member here I couldn't resist buying another one which I will be playing for a while before of maybe parting with this one too.
It is a Silverplate I.M. Grassi " export" (the name of the model is nowhere to be seen on the horn itself but it is featured on the original guarantee from the shop) .
This is not a balanced action Grassi, it is indeed the Silverplate version of the " jade rollers" but with no Jade Rollers , pretty late production date for this type of keys arrangement ( the long rod of the low Eb remains less efficient of the, by this time popular, balanced action one).
Other than that it is in great state and my guess is that it was played very little indeed. Pads are original (not green anymore by this date) and pristine.
