Mt Vernon 37 ML Bb trumpet, 1961
Serial: 220XX
Dr Valve “shielded port valve job”
$2800+shipping (OBO)
More detailed pictures on request

I purchased this trumpet in roughly 2003 as a backup Bb. It had some bell flare damage expertly repaired at Dillon Music

Steve Winans (Dr Valve) performed the following work the summer before the pandemic (2019):
Valve overhaul (shielded ports, plating and refitting)
DrV leadpipe 545
Leadpipe play tested and clocked before mounting
Modern length main tuning slide lower receiver tube assembly installed, to correct short front end
Fabricate and mount patches - 3rd valve entrance knuckle and interconnect windways
Install new modern Bach 3rd stop posts
Custom long (low F) stop rod in stainless

I have all the original parts (see pic 2) that Steve Winans replaced and they will be shipped with the trumpet.

If you are familiar with this work, you know both the quality and cost

Shop card (pdf) and Dr Valve invoice will be provided with purchase
