NEWLY ADDED: MARTIN COMMITTEE HANDCRAFT — KILLER WARM TONE AND EASY PLAYABILITY. RARE GEM OF A HORN.

We recently sold a mint Medium+ Bore handcraft that was possibly the best sounding MCH we've ever heard. And that last horn was near flawless in a satin finish. The buyer loves it and really scored with that horn.

Well now we have the sister to that last horn that went for $10k. We've priced this one well below the last one because even though this baby sounds a little creamier and worm than the last MCH we sold, this one shows a little more mileage and has some very minor blemishes. But it has character and gives away that it was owned by a heavyweight player from the mid-1900s. We are just in love with this horn.

The seller is a celebrity musician/producer and is only letting this go because it's too similar in tone to the MCH large bores that he plays most of the time. If you're looking for the warm Miles Davis or Chet Baker tone right off the bat, then this horn will give you that in spades. It really plays more like a large bore horn, maybe because it's been well-loved and put through the paces over the decades.

We have a Holton Heim #1 in flawless 24k gold condition that will bring you the Miles Davis tone faster than anything else. This is sold separately. Also available are a bunch of other Heims from different eras that complement this horn nicely.

This horn does NOT come with the Monette case in the photo, BUT we do have it for sale separately. We will send this MCH in a very nice hard case (not the original one).

We also have two exquisite custom Taylor horns from a Hollywood movie, a Louis Armstrong quiver Selmer Balanced Bb trumpet, two new Monette single trumpet cases and a bunch of high end mouthpieces for sale now. Please inquire if there's anything you have a hard time finding. We'll try to get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for stopping by.
