The Burbank Trumpet - SN 1984, 3* bell, ML bore

The Burbank Trumpet. This horn is estimated to have been made in 1988-1990. It is a Benge design without the name, since the Benge name was owned by King by this point, if my understanding is correct. For historical info, see…

The most notable Benge feature, of course, is the angle of the 2nd valve slide pointing in the direction of the bell flare. The valve tops & bottoms as well as small stop nuts on the 3rd slide rod also share similarity with a Benge. The reason? It’s a continuation of the Benge build with the same tooling & specs by the same famed artisan Zig Kanstul, who continued to build these after he made them at the Benge plant closed and until his own Kanstul shop closed in spring 2019.

There is evidence of repair on the underside of the bell flare. It is close to pristine other than that. Silver plate appears to be 100%, but I’m not an expert with finishes. See additional pictures.

$1150 shipped to CONUS via PayPal F&F or add 3%.
