Collector's horn from 1926: very straight with only a tiny ding or two and the slightest plating wear confined to the valve cluster. This horn includes an amazing complete-as-the-day-it-was-sold set of C slides and Bb/A slides, original 6A and 6B mouthpieces, as well as cornet to trumpet mpc adapter, mute, etc. Case is free of any musty order and latches securely shut with just the center latch (the two end latches need replacement parts).

This horn plays well in Bb (you can see that the Bb slides, which I have in the case, not the horn, have been used more), and equally well in C. Dr. Valve has worked on one of these horns and reported that it played "surprisingly well" in C -- he was likely surprised because a lot of the older C/Bb convertibles, like the Conns, don't play nearly as well. I have played it more using the cornet mpc adapter, though I like the 6B mpc, too. Also, Mark Curry can make you a modern trumpet mpc with a Buescher specific shank.

This trumpet was very well cared for. The exterior was spotless, and nothing was stuck or even slow. All it needed in the way of servicing was a good clean and polish and new springs. .440 bore (so on the small end of medium). Valve and slide action are impeccable, as is the horn's compression. I offer a 10-day approval period. Simply let me know within 10 days of your receipt of the horn that you would like to return it, and ship it back to me in the same condition you received it. I will gladly refund your full purchase price.

Horn will be shipped alone in case. Slides and mpcs. Will be wrapped separately and go into a small box I will ship with the case. I have plenty more pics if you'd like to see them.
