Cosmetic issues include two patches, spots of plating wear, various stray solder marks, minor ripples from a previous bell dent removal. Just cleaned and oiled and all slides and valves work perfectly. The compression is 100% perfect. Bell measures 4 3/4 and the bore appears to be. The most amazing thing about this horn is the sound!
I've never played a horn that felt so effortless to play. The sound is resonant, full yet full of sweetness and color. Not only are these two of the best trumpets ever made combined, it also was played 10 to 12 hours a day for 50 years.
Nothing can replace that kind of age conditioning. You wont believe you ears. This rare vintage trumpet will include a Protec ProPac case, a Bach 7C mouthpiece and valve oil.The item "Mt Vernon Bach Trumpet Bell Section on French Besson Trumpet-Silver Plated-WOW" is in sale since Friday, July 5, 2019.
