Purchase & shipping

This is an early 1980's vintage MLP that is most likely a transition horn when UMI moved production from Anaheim, CA  to Eastlake Ohio.  It has "Los Angeles" stamped on the bell, but has a 6 digit serial number which is consistent with horns made in Ohio.  It is gold plated and is in excellent condition.  It is unknown if it was originally gold plated or if this was done later, but if the gold plating was done later, it was done very well.  

This trumpet is clean inside and out and the leadpipe is clean and clear; no signs of red rot.   The MLP model has a .464 bore and a "3" bell.  It is open blowing and has very good response. 

All slides are smooth.  Valves are in original condition with great compression. 

Comes with a hard sided case in excellent condition.
