I feel like I have to let everyone know not to bother looking for this trumpet on Reverb. One of our fellow TH members jumped on it before I even had a chance to get it listed. The Deluxes tend to sell fast, but that is a new record.


My oh my! This is the first time I've ever set a record of any kind!

OK, I'm throwing this out on TH because I feel like someone contacted me not that long ago looking for one, but I don't remember who or when.

Anyway, I just found what looks to be a brand new, 3001MV Custom Series "Mike Vax" trumpet stuck in a box. It is lacquered and looks to be pristine. I have a feeling it was one of the last to come through, was set aside for a visiting player to try, and then forgotten about.

I have to give it a once over before listing it, but I am hoping to get it up on Reverb this week. If the mystery, interested party is reading this, I apologize for forgetting who you are. I'll be honest, I never thought another MV would pop up.

So whenever I give you guys the heads up for what is coming to our Reverb I don't have time to list them before they're gone. So let's try this again.

Yesterday we got back a 4895 Custom Reserve flugelhorn that was out for a trial/demo. Low and behold, she came back with a "mystery" dent in the lower part of the bell tail near where it meets the first branch. Of course nobody did it. It just appeared out of nowhere.

Rather than stripping the lacquer, removing the bell, re-buffing, re-lacquering, and re-assembling to sell it as new, let's just save all the time and resources and sell it as is.

I am hoping to list this beauty on Monday, but if there is anyone interested that wants to cut the line, shoot me an email.

Brett: what is really odd is that whenever you announce new Reverb Webshop posts, this https://reverb.com/shop/getzen-company-factory-direct comes up empty. Do I need to log in someplace after I’m logged into Reverb already? Or does this only work for US users? Or do the horns really just never make it to Reverb?

I’m guessing it’s because you are in Germany. Our Reverb shop is set for free shipping, but only in the States. I’m assuming that blocks the listings from IP addresses outside of the country.

Thanks for the swift reply. Guess I’ll have to swing by Bertram next time I’m in Freiburg and test your whole selection

Musik Bertram is a fantastic dealer. If they don’t have what you’re looking for they can definitely get it.

So both the 4895 Custom Reserve flugelhorn and 3001MV Custom Series "Mike Vax" trumpet are now listed on our Reverb shop. I had an early bird buyer lined up for the 3001MV, but things happen and the sale fell through.

I have another sneak peak for my fellow TH members looking for a deal. I just received the latest list of B Stock instruments flagged for sale on our Reverb shop.

Just a reminder, these are instruments that made it all the way through production before being flagged for one or more cosmetic problems. Otherwise, brand new instruments that are not up to snuff to send out to a dealer. Rather than wasting resources and time re-running these to correct a cosmetic problem, we instead choose to offer these up at a discount directly. Kind of like those produce companies that sell the "ugly" vegetables that wouldn't look right on the store shelves.

Anyway, I haven't personally gone through these yet, but here is what I will have going up soon.

900S Eterna Classic trumpet - Small ding in bell flare
907S Eterna Proteus trumpet - Dent in bell throat
580S Capri cornet - Small nicks in plating on bell stem
580S Capri cornet - Light scratch on bell crook
580S Capri cornet - Nicks in bell stem, dent in mouthpipe
800DLXS Eterna Deluxe cornet - Dent in bell flare, nicks in bell throat
3810C Custom Series cornet - Lacquer dry shot inside bell flare
900DLX Eterna Deluxe trumpet - Dents in bell throat

These will all be listed for sale "As Is" including a case and mouthpiece with full warranty coverage for everything other than the cosmetic defects.

Another reminder that brass instruments are fragile and the importance of material handling.

„Musik Bertram is a fantastic dealer. If they don’t have what you’re looking for they can definitely get it.“

Brett: I know, going there once a year — lucky to be able to combine it with a business trip one of our important annual conferences in Freiburg.

I tested the X-13 at Bertram but didn’t have the money to buy it at the time. Who knows … it’s one of the top two or three horns I’d really like to play for a while.

Keep an eye on Reverb (there's a 907DLX there now)

For anyone who has never taken advantage of these deals, I have twice now, and both horns are excellent. I am lucky enough to have one of the 2 593 fanfare trumpets from when production of those sadly ended, and I just received a 907S Proteus that Brett was kind enough to let me know about (probably because I lamented one not being on this list so many times!)

This trumpet became B-stock thanks to an impact event that left a "dent" (its a 3/16" scratch in the plating) in the flare - it took me reading glasses to find it!

For a horn that still looks and works great, has an extremely good intonation profile and even blow, and which has the richest sound of any Getzen I have ever seen, this was a fantastic bargain. (And yes Getzen fans, give it a little push and it still lights up and there's always that little hint of edge you can exploit if you wish)

Thanks (again) Brett!

Ron,

Thank you so much for the glowing review. Like I said in my email to you, I have been anxiously awaiting your first impressions of the 907. As any long time TH member knows, you have not been a fan of our trumpets in general and the Eterna line specifically so I was holding my breath from the moment UPS picked it up. Your description of the 907's characteristics are spot on with what our goal is with the design. I took doing something wrong (that darn bell dent) to learn we did something right.

Enjoy

Brett:

Thank you again for the heads-up and this great opportunity. As I emailed you privately, but should say in public, I am amazed that the mix of MSRP and performance in this horn have not been a bigger hit. Sure, the 907S is not the lead/commercial horn type Getzen is best known for, but it can still fill that role for many while providing additional breadth through the flexibility it affords. I think this is a real sleeper (and there's another B-stock one coming on Reverb folks!)

This is not the Getzen my old biases formed around in the 1980s. This is an American success story that I am more optimistic about than any other right now.

So the recent list of B Stock horns I posted has changed a little bit. The 3810 C cornet was not supposed to be listed as there was nothing wrong with it. And there was a 907DLX added.

This morning I updated our Reverb shop with 5 more listings. This is what went up.

900S Eterna Classic Bb trumpet
Bright Silver Plate
Very small ding/knick on bell flare

907S Eterna Proteus Bb trumpet
Bright Silver Plate
Dent and scratch on bell throat

900DLX Eterna Deluxe Bb trumpet
Bright Lacquer
Two small dings in the bell throat

907DLX Eterna Deluxe Bb trumpet
Bright Lacquer
Excess solder on one of the braces on the first slide and one on the third slide. There is also an imperfection in the lacquer on the inside of the bell flare.

490S Advanced Student Bb trumpet
Bright Silver Plate
There was a surface scratch in the silver on the bell between the etch and flare. They were able to polish about 80% of it out, but there is still a faint line on the surface.

If you are interested in any of these email me or visit the Reverb shop https://reverb.com/shop/getzen-company-factory-direct

I've got another hot tip/heads up for my fellow Trumpet Herald members and fans of the Edwards X-13.

I have one, possibly two, but definitely one B Stock X-13 I am preparing to list for sale on Reverb. This one has some very small marks in the solder of the bell rim. Small enough, I'm not sure if I will be able to capture them in a photograph.

Historically, these do not last long on Reverb. In fact, I don't think the last few even made it there. If you are interested feel free to cut the line and email me for the details. Otherwise, I will update this thread when it is listed.

OK, now I have an odd one. Back several years ago, we had some interest from a customer that wanted a 3916 Custom Series piccolo with a yellow bell instead of the standard copper bell. We had never made that model with a yellow bell before, but said we would look into. At some point, hey changed their mind and went with the copper bell anyway. And that was the end of it... or so I thought.

Turns out, back in 2013 (I think that's what the job card says) we did in fact build one, single 3916 piccolo with a yellow bell. It was completely finished with a note that says "Not for sale". At some point it got put in a case, stuck on a shelf, and completely forgotten about. Until yesterday when I happened to be curious why a piccolo trumpet case was sitting around only to open it up and find a brand new picc inside.

So yeah, I have a brand new, one of a kind, 3916 Custom Series long model piccolo with a yellow brass bell. In need of a good home. Everything about it is the same as this https://www.getzen.com/trumpets/custom-series/3916-piccolo/ except that it has a yellow brass bell.

I am going to through it up today and see what happens.

Hi Brett,
What is the difference in sound quality and playability between the Edwards X-27 and Getzen 3001MV on the Reverb page?

In case it is useful, my recollection is that the X27 is more focused and has a tighter blow than the 3001MV.

As an aside, I'll add that the 3001MV with the clear lacquer finish is a really nice looking horn.

They are two very different beasts. Different bell tapers, bell material, bell construction, leadpipes, receivers, trim weight, etc....

The X-27 with it's two piece, yellow brass bell is more like a 907 Eterna Proteus. 99.9% certain the X-17 has the same bell taper without the heat treating a 907 gets. A good, middle of the road design with the potential to cut when pushed, but not really geared that way.

The 3001MV was designed to meet the needs of Mike Vax back in the day. It is a lead horn at heart, with a more open feel (thanks to the #172 bell and lower tuning slide venturi). The hand hammered, gold brass bell has more character/color than the X-27's, but because it is lighter weight, it has the ability to cut a little more.

Wow, reading that back it sounds like a lot of marketing babble. Search around on TH and look for reviews of the 3001MV and compare that to what players say about the 907. I would trust the impression of real world players over me every day of the week.
