This is a brand new trumpet!! I play tested it, bought it, and put it in the case. The Navy provides me with all the horns I need so this one never gets played. Price at Woodwind Brasswind is $3595. Comes with a 3 foot K&M trumpet stand. Brand new Shires 3C mouthpiece and valve oil. Case has a carrying strap. Buyer pays cost of shipping. If you have more questions or would like different photos of the horn I will be glad to provide them.

Here is the description straight from Shires:

The S.E. Shires Model BLW trumpet features a lightweight version of the broad “B” bell that allows for even faster response and an open high register. Brilliant and nimble, it navigates technical passages with flexibility and ease. It sounds warm, round, and intimate at when played softly, but sizzles at high volumes—and projects easily to the back of any performance space. The openness of the standard W leadpipe provides a free, stable-slotting, but flexible blow; its relatively fast taper adds brilliance to the characteristic warmth of the B bell taper. Yellow-brass balusters and lightweight yellow brass valve caps add depth and immediacy to the sound. The combination of playability and warmth unique to the BLW make it one of the few lightweight trumpets to appeal to lead and classical players alike.
