Flip Oakes C trumpet

Who is this trumpet for?
Someone who:
- Wants a projecting broad sound
- Wants easy connectivity between notes
- Wants the upper register to be open
- Doesn’t want to go on a C trumpet mouthpiece safari
This trumpet is in great condition with very tight compression. Everything functions perfectly. There is one very light ding on the bell crook.
This instrument easily produces broad sound and plays very open and extremely easy in all registers with even stock mouthpieces, unlike many C trumpets when you blow into it you immediately want to change mouthpieces. The Flip Oakes valve alignment allows the horn to play very even and smooth from note to note. The horn doesn’t get tight in the upper register so note accuracy and articulation are reliable.
The low register sounds very broad and power while the upper register has the easy ability to sound sweetly and round if desired.

It comes with standard weight and heavy weight valve caps with O rings. It also comes with D shaped and round tuning slides.

No case
$3000 OBO (shipping included to CONUS)

I look forward to entertaining your offers.
