Horns come and go daily in my shop, but this is the first Calicchio Ultra 3/9 to pass my way in a very, very long time.

This is a beautiful set up for Jazz or legit.
The horn is very free blowing with a huge,rich sound that is made possible by the large #9 pipe,with the big #3 bell, and the large bore @.468. This is the famous Freddie Hubbard set up which he used for so many years. This horn has a NEW #9 leadpipe which was purchased direct from the former Calicchio owner John Duda. Although it is hard to see now,the horn had some hand wear around the first and third valves. It was sent to Charlie Melk for a tune up…. New springs, new finger hook,aligned first and third slides etc. He also "spot silvered" the hand wear for looks. When I got the horn back and played it, I just started laughing at how easy the slides worked. Just like butter.

The former owner must have had very acidic hands as there are preventive or "wear" patches on almost every place
your hands would touch, even on top of the valve caps!! Obviously someone wanted to keep this horn in play because
it is rare and so easy to play.
