THIS IS A VERY RARE MUSEUM PIECE SELMER BUNDY 1941 TRUMPET PROFESSIONAL GRADE HORN MADE BY GEORGE BUNDY OWNER OF SELMER USA
PLEASE READ THE STORY I'M WRITING TO INFORM YOU ABOUT THIS EARLY SILVER (MINT-MINT) TRUMPET.
THIS IS A SELMER BUNDY TRUMPET RARE TIME CAPSULE COLLECTIBLE (VERY PLAYABLE) TRUMPET. SERIAL#22210
BUNDY'S WERE ORIGINALLY PROFESSIONAL MODEL INSTRUMENTS.
IT HAS BEAUTIFUL ENGRAVING ON THE BELL. AND READS AS FOLLOWS:
BIG BLOCK LETTERS BUNDY
THEN IN A SHIELD SELMER
ELKHART-IND
DISTRIBUTORS.
I WAS INFORMED THAT THIS HORN WAS A PROTOTYPE. IN OTHER WORDS A CONCEPT TRUMPET.
THERE IS NOT MUCH HISTORY TO GO BY FOR THIS RARE TRUMPET.
I HAVE HAD WHAT I FEEL IS A HISTORIAN FOR TRUMPETS CONTACT ME THAT SAID HE THINKS THERE WAS A RELATIONSHIP THAT MR. BUNDY HAD WITH THE BUESCHER INSTRUMENT CO IN ELKHART INDIANA, AND THEREFORE THIS HORN IS SOMEWHAT OF A CLONE OF THE BUESCHER 400 TRUMPET THAT THE FAMOUS TRUMPET PLAYER CLIFFORD BROWN PLAYED AND MADE FAMOUS. THE HORN RESEMBLES THE BUESCHER 400 .IN EVERY ASPECT.
THIS TRUMPET IS AGAIN IN A BRUSHED SILVER AND VERY HEAVY BUILT LIKE A TANK SO OBVIOUSLY THEY USED THE FINEST BRASS.
THERE ARE NO DENTS CREASES NOR ANY MAJOR ISSUES. OR LOSS OF SILVER AS IT IS FULLY INTACT.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A BEAUTIFUL TRUMPET . THE HORN'S INTONATION IS OUTSTANDING, VALVES NICKEL SILVER IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, COMPRESSION 100%. (UPPER REGISTER SIZZLES.)
AGAIN A VERY RARE TIME CAPSULE TRUMPET. PLAYS GREAT IN ALL REGISTERS.

THE HORN COMES IN AN ALLIGATOR CASE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. RED VELVET INTERIOR AND IT DOES NOT SMELL. IN THE CASE IS A PAPER THAT READS :
IMPORTANT
EVEN THE BEST PLUSH OR VELVET FADES FROM CONTACT WITH DIRECT SUNLIGHT.
THEREFORE,DO NOT KEEP THIS CASE OPEN IN YOUR WINDOW SO THE SUN WILL SHINE ON THE LINING.
