Bach Mt. Vernon Mercedes model - $895

- Early Mt. Vernon, serial#13,xxx.
- I believe these are M bores with #7 leadpipe and a 37 or 38 bells. What I LOVE abut this horn is that it's is still the narrow Besson or Benge style tight wrap, which was also used on the NY Bach horns. They went to a wider wrap shorty after this horn, which is early 1950's.
- This has been my daily player for the last month or two. Personally, I think it outplays each of the 5-6 NY Bach Strad trumpets I've owned. I believe Freddie Hubbard played one in the 60's as well.

COSMETICS: Very sharp looking.

- A tiny ding or two, and one very small, well-done patch near the main waterkey. (See pic)
- Looks to be an older relacquer, which is about 80 percent. It was 95% until I gave it a bath!
- Engraving looks crisp, sharp, and clear.


- Great Valves, slides, and compression. Valves are all stamped with matching serial #.

This horn PLAYS, and has done nothing but impress me. I'll throw in a case as well.

SHIPPING: $45 USPS, fully insured to the USA. International, contact me.
PAYMENT: PayPal, USPS M/O, or cash in-person. If using PayPal, please cover the 3% fee, or send as a personal payment. Your choice....I have no preference.

If you're in the NYC area, please feel free to come play it! There is no substitute for holding, viewing, and playing a horn in-person. I am also happy to answer any questions or send more pics. Thanks
