Selling my wonderful Shires 4F C trumpet. It's never had any damage or repairs and is in excellent shape with only a couple of very tiny mute dings. Plating is >99% and all valves and slides work great. Horn plays great and includes the original W1B leadpipe as well as the installed WEB pipe in raw brass. I think I've had the horn around 5 years. I purchased it when it was less than one year old from a fantastic Shires artist. Selling to fund another purchase. I'll include a nice protech single case. This will set you back over $4k new with tax if you can find one in stock!

Additional info on the Leadpipes: The installed WEB has a .349 venturi and is annealed which gives it a little more stability and slightly more resistance than the W1B which has a .351 venturi. I used the W1B for years but when I switched to a Monette mouthpiece, I felt I needed some additional resistance/help. Both leadpipes are terrific. I will also include the adapter that enables you to easily and securely test an unsoldered leadpipe.
