This trumpet was made for Doc Severinsen in 1968 by Ray Amado, inventor of the Amado waterkey and Jet-Tone mouthpieces. Mr Amado utilized standard Getzen Eterna parts which he then modified for a more elegant look with the exception of a Bach tuning slide crook which was used to improve the ergonomics when holding the trumpet. The very first Amado waterways are fitted which although similar to the mass produced versions made later, have a removable end cap and nipple which was silver soldered on the key body. Amado fully engraved the instrument prior to gold plating which had clear lacquer applied over the gold for added protection. The trumpet was made available to me when Severinsen elected not to keep it initially. Ironically, when I brought the trumpet out to "re-visit" with Severinsen many years later his comment after blowing it was, "I shouldn't never have given this back". Perhaps one of the very best Getzen Eternas you will ever play, it certainly is one of a kind and the provenance will make it quite collectable in the future. Supplied with the original custom brown leather case, I do not accept PayPal, credit or debit cards or any other form of electronic payment and a cashiers check is preferred. Shipping within the USA is included and international shipping will be determined depending on destination shipped to.
