“The R4 Truly does everything you could ask for, it gives you a beautiful, free-blowing mid range, as well as an opportunity to really zing in the upper register. It is versatile to create both a dark, warm sound as well as the shimmer that any lead player is looking for. At this price, you could not ask for a better product.”.
