I'm selling a Leitzinger platinum plated bocal in mint shape. MD2 type V. Wonderful, easy blowing bocal with a very even, dark sound. V - offers a very open sound, low blowing resistance and a very rich lower register. M is made of thicker metal. D is a special “Gold“ brass alloy, which favors the uppermost register while providing unaltered playing and tone quality in all other registers. The new price is approximatively 1200 euros. Get yourself a bargain!
