This instrument is a 1930's New York Bach Mercedes Bb trumpet in excellent condition, which I recently purchased from J. Landress Brass in New York. The instrument was being sold from the collection of Peter Bond and I can provide
I am selling the instrument because I settled on a Laskey-Pinc Bb trumpet and I can only keep one Bb trumpet at this time.
This NY Bach Mercedes is a Medium-bore instrument and it has the classic NY Bach sound, for a fraction of the price of a NY Bach Strad. This horn makes certain passages notably easier, for example the low excerpt from Bizet's Carmen and the 2nd trumpet parts to Schuman's 2nd Symphony speak extremely well, as does the instrument's upper register. In my opinion, it would be a great horn to use for the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 1.
The instrument is in excellent condition. The valves have been re-plated and look new, and each one has the instrument's serial number stamped on it. There is a very long mouthpiece receiver, characteristic of horns from this era and it has an original Bach case in excellent condition - the foil Bach emblem is still intact, and it comes with a NY Bach 7C mouthpiece.
This instrument has lacquer finish, which has some spots of wear, but overall it looks intact, and that it is possible it is the original lacquer. The serial number is: 5790. I am only selling this instrument for what I paid for it, about a month ago, $1800 + S/H
Thank you for looking.
