Purchase & shipping

This is a 1978 Los Angeles Benge 5X in very good original condition. The 5 bell has a darker sound than the 3x, so while still a lively and lighweight horn, this is not quite as bright as the 3x model.  This is an ML or .460 bore.   This trumpet is clean inside and out and the leadpipe is clean and clear; no signs of red rot. 

This is a  Los Angles  horn and was made during the good production years for Benge, before UMI moved production to Ohio. 

All slides are smooth.  Original silver plating is very good showing only minor wear on the side of the valve casing.   Engraving is sharp and clear. Valves are in excellent original condition with great compression. 

Original conditon LA Benges are becoming harder to find and this one is a great example of these horns.

Comes with original case in very good condition.
