Are they trying to say that this particular instrument was played by Miles Davis?

They sure seem to be doing their best to at least imply both the trumpet and mouthpiece were Mile’s.

THIS IS A MAGIC MUSIC INSTRUMENT, A SUPER EXCLUSIVE “ART-WORK” FOR A FEW ELECTED COLLECTORS AROUND THE WORLD.

ORIGINAL MILES DAVIS TRUMPET. 1946 MARTIN COMMITEE Trumpet + HEIM mouthpiece (the original of Miles) + hard safe case.

This magnificent instrument is in excellent condition. It’s like new. Valves and slides are perfect and this horn plays awesome!

This is not only the trumpet of the legendary Miles Davis, this is a great investment: you will be the owner of something that is unique.

The cost of this trumpet is nothing compared to the emotions it can gives you.

What a pile.

Love the random photo of some completely different non-Committee horn on a chair...

They should add the following line:

"For when the trumpet-like noises you make aren't enough of an insult to the memory of Miles Davis, you can now take it one step further by 'playing' his very own horn!"

I would have no issue with insulting Miles Davis, but the part that makes me literally laugh out loud - The cost of this trumpet is nothing compared to the emotions it will give you.

Could the seller be slightly more try-hard and corny?

Hey, give the seller a break! Free shipping makes it a bargain.

For 32 grand I would proclaim its greatness even if it sounded like an old beat up Conn Director. It could kind of be like the king's new suit.

I believe Larry Ramirez sold one of the horns he custom built for Miles, just not the one he settled on, for a significant sum - but this guy is asking more for a horn without remotely similar provenance.
