It’s hard to believe, but this trumpet is 116 years old!! It is a Holton shepherd’s crook trumpet in great shape for it’s age. It has been professionally cleaned/serviced and all ready to go. All slides/valves work terrific and the horn still has very good compression. The horn plays great for it’s age and I would say sounds somewhere between a normal trumpet and a cornet. It does have some cosmetic issues, but nothing major at all. As you can see, someone put a patch on the crook going into the third valve. I’m not sure why it was put there, but It’s solid as can be. Also, some dings/dimples in places, but again, nothing major. It appears that one of the small braces was also resoldered. All in all, the horn is in amazing shape and is clean as can be inside/out. It does not come with a case or mouthpiece (it takes a standard trumpet mouthpiece), but will be packed with extreme care.
