Mt. Vernon Bb to C conversion

Updated: After more research this is what I found. This trumpet is a Bach Mount Vernon Bb that was converted to a C trumpet.

Previously owned by a member of the Paris Opera. This is a clean playing trumpet. I don’t know a lot about it. Was modified with some parts from Brass Spa in Sweden. I wanted the traditional parts put back on. I had Charlie Melk (Charlie’s Brass Works) do all the work.

Bore Size - Large
Model Number - I don't know. There isn't a number on the bell.

I do have the original parts (lead pipe, finger hook)

New finger ring on lead pipe rather than the original hook
Melk .525 lead pipe (I have the original)
Bigger screw for third valve stop
New ring for 1st valve slide
Amado water key
Valves work great
Slides have great compression and move really fast
Valve alignment

I took great care of this trumpet. Just looking to get a different horn for an audition.

I had some trouble getting the pictures the right size. If you would like some pictures, let me know. I attached a link to my webpage.

I am selling this for $2500.
I do not have the shop card.
