|Vintage Schilke B6-b trumpet - $1650|
- Serial# 13,xxx; B6 model with rare Beryllium bell. (a la Bill Chase)
This is my bandmates horn. I have played next to him for years, and can personally vouch for the care he has taken, and the admiration he has for it. I was able to find him a coveted B6L tunable bell horn, which is the only reason why this one is for sale.
COSMETICS: VERY nice overall.
- There's a couple of small mute dings/impressions in the bell. The "B" bells are VERY fragile, and impossible to keep perfect. The "B" is stamped on the ferrule at the bell tail, indicating Beryllium.
- Minor plating wear in a few spots at hand contact points. Overall, the plating still looks pretty great...I'd rate it at 95%.
Valves are excellent. Compression is excellent. Slides are Excellent. Nothing to report here.
The horn plays wonderfully. Projection and edge are stellar. Here is a clip of the band we play in, where you can hear the horn in action on "Stardust." (solo starts at 3:10):
SHIPPING: $55 USPS, fully insured to the USA. International, contact me.
PAYMENT: PayPal, USPS M/O, or cash in-person. If using PayPal, please send F/F, or cover the fee.
If you're in the NYC area, please feel free to come play it! I am happy to answer any questions or send more pics. Thanks
