Ouvriers Reunis Association Generale Ophicleide in C

A wonderful example of a late Ophicleide in C. This one was made by Ouvriers Reunis Association Generale (General Association of Re-united Workers) in Paris after 1900. I would say it is the "pinacle" of Ophi technology as the keywork has rods and posts mounted on long rib plates (similar to saxophones). It also has larger keys which helps stabalize intonation. I would say this is one of the best sounding and most in tune ophicleides I have encountered. It is in great shape and was restored by Robb Stewart, so it is in perfect playing condition.
