 Plating differences on Loree Royal vs Standard
Author: mberkowski

Can anyone shed light on any differences between how Loree does the plating on their Standard line vs Royal line?

I've been evaluating several used instruments and have noticed considerably more black tarnish on the Standard models than on the Royals. In one case, a Royal which is 6 or 7 years old has no tarnish while a Standard which is barely 6 *months* old already shows quite a bit. The older the Standard models get, the more tarnish shows especially where pad cups are soldered, while considerably less (or none) on Royals. Or on my own Covey, 20 years old and the plating looks new.

Is there actually a difference, or is this only a coincidence based on how the prior owners handled them? I really like one of these instruments, but I'm afraid its keywork will be be black within a couple of years based on what wear it shows now.

Thanks!

Michael
