Late MVI in a very good condition, maybe except the lacquer. It has been overhauled by me about 3 years ago. It has been disassembled, the pads have been cleaned (and are almost as new). The mechanism is very tight and supple. The sound is very nice: round and full, not a screamer. Intonation is easy, blowing from low to altissimo is easy. A very good instrument!
