From Brass Review: "The ZKT 1500B trumpet features a lightweight 4 7/8" bell and matching mouthpipe. It balances sizzle and blend for all around use. It is excellent as a section instrument."


This is a wonderful horn with what I think is a a 'focused core' sound. This horn is from the era where Zigmat didn't mark the horns; he kept all the details in his head instead of marking the mouthpiece receiver.

It's a really nice horn - I wish I could keep it, but... Make me an offer - I need to sell this horn!

I bought it from a fellow Trumpet Herald member who had converted it back to traditional water keys and fitted a traditional thumb-saddle. I sent it to Anaheim where under Charles Hargett's supervision it was made like new, and a 2nd - more rounded crook - tuning slide was fitted. It was Charles that confirmed the model number.

The person I bought this from took it in for a PVA, and was told that it didn't need it.

More pictures on request. I can include the case shown with the horn.
