This magnificent horn came to us with all the original accessories, including the two piece case, lyre, period stand, and original mouthpiece with bit. The bit is important, as these american recording basses were designed to be played with at least one mouthpiece bit, like a sousaphone. Playing without it causes the horns response to be wooly and indistinct.
