    When you pick up the TAT-Special, you realize the Caparison difference; a playable work of art that is precision-engineered to stand the test of time and meet the needs of even the most demanding player. Caparisons’ new striking Trans. Spectrum ‘Pearlescent Aura’ finishes really accentuate the graceful curves of this instrument and will subtly shimmer and dance under stage lighting.
