does anyone recognize this r&c??...-im not sure about th finish, but to me it looks like someone actually tried spray painting it or something...it certainly could use some love and something makes it very appealing to me -but i don't really know much of r&c, so i was wondering if anyone could tell me something about its quality , sound and whatever you know :)

Thanks
John

Unlike Selmer, the name RC has only recently become known in the US. Judging from the way it looks, this is a vintage RC horn alright.

You can try to email some pics of the horn to [email protected] and see if the company can identify it for you.

How does it play? Or you don't have the horns in your hands?

I should add that, like Borgani, not many players know the brand RC because it is usually more expensive than other brands.

In other words, they can't afford RC, so they cannot experience and comment on them.

Sorry about the interrupted phrases (thoughts).

Or, like Borgani, only recently entered the realm of crafting pro horns and all their earlier horns were not highly considered.

Got a serial number?
