This is one of those Wohlrab trumpets that has no second valve slide, as the loop goes inside the valve piston. The patent can be seen here:

There are some of these around, but they are usually pretty banged up. This one has its blemishes too, but it is one of the better I have seen. The lacquer is gone and the back leadpipe-to-bell brace has been resoldered, but that's it. The bell looks nice as well as the leadpipe.

How does it play? Is it only a collector's item? It has a pretty tight blow and a brassy sound, but it is not a bad horn. I would put it in the same league as quality student trumpets from well known manufacturers. If we put it like this, I would not take it to rehearsal as long as I have any pro trumpet at all home, but if I had no pro trumpet, I would not waste time replacing this one with anything else than a pro trumpet.

Cleaned and ready for a new owner. A small streamlined case is included, I believe it's the original case.

Price: Worldwide shipping included, 220 USD or if it stays in Europe, 170 EUR including shipping.
