There really weren't to many of these naked lady Bari's made with rolled tone holes..

During the golden era rolled tone hole, there's just a small amount of naked lady Bari's that exist.

To elaborate a little more on the playability of these... If you play alot of other Baris, such as almost every modern bari, or Mark VIs,.. Nearly every other baritone plays like a baritone.. It takes a huge amount of wind to pass through and make it all happen... These old Conns on the other hand take air like a tenor sax, and really make playing on them a breeze once you get used to the key ergonomics!
Once again this horn will will require a full overhaul and pad job!
