This horn plays very well. The valves move well with good compression, have little wear and feel very mechanically sound, with no wiggle from side to side.
The slides all move well, of course. As for the aesthetic condition of the horn, there are a few small dings and pings as well as some light pitting and scratching on the valve cluster. All this is visible in the pictures, and none of it affects the playability of the horn. This horn is not lacquered; therefore fingerprints should be wiped off after use if the player wishes for the horn to stay as shiny as it is now--if they are not wiped off then the horn will develop a lovely patina.This trumpet comes with a mouthpiece and a somewhat worn case.
