Purchase & shipping

This is a 1946 Martin Committee Bb trumpet in very good original condition.  This is a medium bore Committee from what many consider to be the best vintage.  Original lacquer is showing some wear, but most of the original lacquer is still intact.  The missing areas give it a little bit of a splotchy appearance, but what it lacks in appearance, it makes up for with that unmistakable vintage Committee sound and feel.  The close up photos show all the areas of missing lacquer, but from a short distance away, it has a much better overall appearance.  Missing lacquer, but no red rot.

All slides are smooth and valve compression is quite good.    

This horn is a survivor that has been in a private collection for a number of years and luckily has not been modified or restored, so it represents an original vintage Committee.  

Has that great smooth smokey sound and loose slotting that have made these horns legendary for jazz work.  Comes with the original case showing some wear.
