Rampone has long created a culture of high quality, beautiful sounding and master crafted instruments that captures both the aesthetic sensibility of an Italian artisan and the multiplicity of sound necessary for the highest level of artistic expression. Did I mention that it's a gorgeous instrument? Featuring gold playing, intricate engraving, modern ergonomics, this one piece soprano is flexible enough for the concert hall, as well as, the bandstand. Rampone instruments also feature a larger bore, providing the sound and broad color spectrum usually reserved for early American instruments. This is the best of both worlds, of the new world and the old world, without the headaches or ergonomic challenges. Go forth and create beauty.
