Looks superb - the case harkens back to 1950s.

The first batch should ship out this month. I will post where they are headed when they roll out.

We are taking orders now so if you’re interested be sure to let your local dealer know. Even if they aren’t currently a Getzen dealer.

This horn is terrifying beautiful, I can imagine buying it, putting it on a stand and then look to it for ages without even playing it.

You could always buy two. One for show and one to play. In fact, I think that is what everyone should do.

I've already exhausted my horn budget for the next few years. But I can dream, can't I?

The list price of $2,499 is less than I would have guessed.

How does that compare to the regular 800 Eterna with a large bore and copper bell?

It is enough of an improvement that I’m embarrassed by the 800.

Postings like this send fits of Gear Acquisition Syndrome (GAS) through the trumpet community. (In this case GAS could be Getzen Acquisition Syndrome!)
Absolutely beautiful horn. Would love to see and test one out some day.

Any chance there's a C version coming next?

The next Deluxe model is another trumpet which (fingers crossed) will be present at Midwest this year. We are in the planning phase of the fourth Deluxe model and have no concrete plans on a fifth. I will think about it.

Honestly with how great the 800DLX it’s hard not to want to go back and fine tune all of the Eterna models.

Quick question: what is the purpose of the silver leadpipe other than preventing corrosion and a cool look?

Sterling silver, at least in this application, greatly increases the horn’s dynamics. Keeps the clarity and precision in the lower register and the smooth and rich tone in the upper.

I played this horn briefly at the US open Championships yesterday and was extremely impressed. It's a beautiful horn and quite stunning. It has a wonderful feel in the hands with good balance and of course the amazing Getzen valves. The horn plays very smoothly with great responsiveness. Intonation is excellent as well.

I hope to play the horn a bit more in the future!
