Purchase & shipping

This is a 1974 Los Angeles Benge MLP in very good original condition. Also known as the 3x+ or Medium Large Plus model, it has a .464 bore. This trumpet is clean inside and out and the leadpipe is clean and clear; no signs of red rot. 

As an early LA horn, the bell size is marked on the connecting ferrule to the bell and not on the bell hallmark. The "3" is stamped on  the ferrule as shown in the photos.

All slides are smooth.  Original silver plating is very good showing only very minor sign of wear to the silver on a the side of the 3rd valve of the valve casing.  Engraving is sharp and clear. Valves are in excellent original condition with great compression. 

This is one of the better original condition LA Benge MLPs that we've seen and it plays very well.

Does not come with a case, but we can provide a gig bag if one is needed.
