1979 Benge 2X MLP Bb trumpet 

SOLD

email us about this trumpet - centexbrass@gmail.com

This is a 1979 Los Angeles Benge MLP with a 2X bell  in very good original condition.  Known as the Medium Large Plus model, it has a .464 bore. Almost every MLP came with the standard 3X bell, but this one has the much less common 2x bell.  This creates a great combination for a lead trumpet horn that is very open, lively, and can really project with a laser focused sound. 

This trumpet is clean inside and out and the leadpipe is clean and clear; no signs of red rot. 

All slides are smooth.  Original silver plating is in exceptional condition, but almost no signs of wear.  Engraving is sharp and clear. Valves are in excellent original condition with great compression. 

You'd be hard pressed to find an original condition LA Benge as nice as this one.  It plays very well and with the 2x bell and MLP bore, it is quite a rare find.

Comes with the original case in very good condition.
