The soundbox on this is in fine condition except for the back rubber insert which is now replaced. It sounds excellent, as usual with these Paillard No. 8 units. Thanks for your response.

In answer to Marco Gilardetti, my Salon Decca 130 is indeed the one that was advertised on eBay. Those Paillard 8 soundboxes, especially the backs, rarely photograph very well, as the crackle finish with light reflections as well as the inevitable paint flaking or being thinner around the edges makes the condition look much worse than it actually is. As I posted above, apart from the hardening of the back rubber insert (which has been replaced) this one reproduces perfectly, with the usual great depth and clarity.

I'm glad that you're happy with your purchase. I had a lot of expenses last month, so I was tracking the auction but refrained to bid. Also - as said - the soundbox looked in quite alarming conditions and kept me a bit at large. I'm glad that it was better than it looked at first! Enjoy your new singing friend!

Should you decide to resell the unit in the future for whatever reason, please remember me and drop me a line!
