This is a raw brass Selmer Radial 2 Bb Trumpet from 1971 (S/N 51xxx). This is an unmarked bore size (normally on the receiver) but the bore is measured .464” meaning this is a 75 (for 11.75mm). These trumpets were called Radial for its ergonomic reasons, which the first and third valves precisely formed an angle of 2° with the vertical middle valve - the same angle that is followed by the fingers in the movement of closing. There are some pitting from years of playing but they are surface damage only, while the inner slides are in great shape. It has some non-original finger buttons but the valves are aligned correctly with these ones. The valves are silky smooth and tight, and still have very good compression! Loud pops when the slides are pulled. No red rot anywhere on the trumpet. It is not the prettiest of them all, but you really can’t find a cheaper one in this nice of a condition elsewhere! The trumpet has just been stripped (old lacquer), polished and cleaned by Dana Hofer, master repairman here in Chicago so it is ready for its next life!
