Purchase & shipping

This is a 1969 Burbank Benge 5X in very good condition.  It is finished in lacquer and has most likely been relacquered in the past, but the work was well done, and the engraving is still sharp and clear.  It has three spots of red rot.  One on the mouthpiece receiver.  Another on the last section of the leadpipe.  The final is on the tuning slide crook.  Interestingly, the middle section of the leadpipe which is most susceptible to red rot is free of any corrosion. While we typically have any areas of red rot replaced, since the middle section of the leadpipe is clear and the other areas appear to be solid, we chose not to have further work done. With proper cleaning, these parts should give decades of additional service.  

The horn plays very well and is a great example of the handmade trumpets that were being produced by Benge in the Burbank era.  

Valve compression is very good and all slides operating smoothly.  There is no indication of any past damage or trauma.   

Comes with the original case in good condition.
