The DN2E is a beautiful model, showcasing exceptional craftsmanship and meticulous metalwork. All engraving is hand engraved. This model has recently become available. Previously engraving was only done on silver models, but the use of engraved nickel mounts allows for fantastic aesthetic details in a more affordable price range. All of the engraving - ferrules, slides, ring caps, and chanter band - make for a striking instrument.
