A very nice looking and good playing "Bb" Trumpet. It was totally stripped of the old lacquer that someone added onto the gold plating.
It was then polished and left with the original gold plated finish.
All solder joints inspected and redone as necessary. Valves and valve casings were chemically cleaned. New corks, felts and springs have been installed.
The original leadpipe has been replaced may a matching mouthpipe and the two top tubes have been replaced in the main tuning slide. All crooks are original
These horns have great intonation, a sweet tone, and a smoothe scale.

With so many inferior Asian instruments being sold today, we do not service or sell certain brands. These instruments do not stay in playing condition for long and many times are not worth the cost to repair. Replacement parts are usually unavailable and are non-standard. Retailers who sell these instruments usually try to mislead consumers by saying that these instruments are "band approved" "teacher approved" or "instructor approved". Please be aware of this before you purchase an instrument that is priced at a fraction of the established brands.
