LIMITING MY TRUMPET COLLECTION / SPRING CLEANING. PRESENTING COMBINATION OF NEW AND VINTAGE!
THIS HORN ALSO HAS ALMOST 5 BELL FLARE (4.90). This trumpet is silver plated and looks and plays great. This horn comes from the end of Holton era when they were still in operation (circa 1990s) and Maynard Ferguson was still touring. This horn features short stroke valve section which was same valve section Miles Davis used to prefer on his late Martins.
Holton / Leblanc were making last Committees at those days as well and some of them featured short stroke valves just like this Holton. This horn being intermediate model its also suitable for the pro player who wishes to own a great jazzy horn with short stroke valves and wanna play a cheaper but effective horn on a gig. This horn also features amado water keys on tuning slide (please notice one ding near it) and 3rd slide (3rd slide has some black water marks) SEE ALL PICS. Its possible that there was a minor repair near very edge of the top of the bell but its really really hard to tell or notice. There are a couple minor dings near MF letters towards bell flare.
Horn also features leadpipe ring very useful during mute changes. This horn is overall in great used and excellent condition with overall great silver plating. Dont see wear to the brass anywhere. Valves are smooth with great compression.
This horn players very well. Im limiting my trumpet collection.
Trumpet comes with original Holton 7C mouthpiece in great shape and vintage case with purple interior. Similar cases used to come with original Holton trumpets daring back to 1920s and 1930s. If Holton company would be still in operation it would be reaching 100th anniversary. I used to compare many horns to each other in the past for playability so some horns got stuck with me over period of years.
