Try as I might, I could not take good pictures of this horn, it is just too shiny.

This is a handmade, incredibly well built instrument. It blended perfectly with my Yamaha Custom YTR-948FFMS, which is a top of the line horn as well.

The brand is less well known here, but very well respected in Europe. Small shop, with a master maker and one apprentice.

The bell is hand hammered, never spun (!!!), and it is absolutely perfect. The silver plate is 100%, and the polish job is so good, the silver takes 3 times as long to tarnish as my Shires Piston C.

This is a truly world class Bb rotary trumpet. It has a traditional rotary Bb sound. It is not a free blowing, modern Perinet feel-alike horn. However, it is not stuffy, and it plays well in tune, which is not a given with these instruments.

It has a lightweight, thin Kranz (garland). It has no High C key, which I find it does not need (My C's High C key is very useful sometimes, like for Also Spracht, etc...)

The valves look like Meinlschmidt, and they are quiet, smooth, and very tight. No leaks here.

I play it either with a GW deep mouthpiece, or a Breslmair G1. I have used a Pickett 1.25A (21, #0bb) with success in the past as well.

The trumpet comes without a mouthpiece, but with the original case, which is used, but in great condition.

The trumpet is mint, with no scratches, no dents, no plating wear. It looks absolutely brand new.

I will ship for free in the continental US provided it sells for the asking price. No international shipping, you can pick it up in Orlando.
I will ship the horn packed in bubble wrap inside the case, which will also be bubble wrapped in the box.

Sold as is.

This trumpet could pass for brand new.

I am selling because I have a roof leak, and no gigs at all since March, so I must let go of a few trumpets, unfortunately. I will also list my Yamaha C rotary, if you are interested in that as well. I could make you a great deal if you buy both.
