Handmade by the master himself in his workshop in Munich during his Golden Age. This is a fine instrument, well-loved by many amateurs and professional trumpeters alike for its easy piston-->rotary "switch factor." Having owned a fairly comprehensive collection of rotaries ranging from Yamahas to Schagerls, I can say that this Ganter G7aN is probably the most responsive rotary trumpet I've played.

It's a simple playing masterpiece and will assure you as a stable rotary instrument in your playing collection. Sliding onto a Ganter is easy as switching between a trumpet to a cornet. Not to mention its elegant and dynamic design, accentuated by its floral valve cap engravings, topped off by a handsome traditional kranz/garland.

It has a few dings/scratches here and there but the lacquer has sustained well over the years. Oddly, the 2nd valve rotor cap doesn't screw in all the way but it has no effect on the technical operation of the instrument.

Provenance: Originally purchased directly from Hermann Ganter by a professor at the Hamburg Conservatory and then sold to his student and then onto me for collecting/minor playing purposes.

Comes with a nice German-manufacture rotary trumpet case.
