Also, you will note several other impressive features. The valves are a short throw, fast action creation, as was the case when first introduced by the 1930s legendary Vega brand of trumpetsparticularly the Power model. It also has an underslung third tuning slide finger holdwhich was reserved by Selmer for their top pro lines.This horn also has an extra band of brass surrounding the bottom of the bellit gives an increased resonance to its sound production! As you can see it has been completely restored, close to its original condition!
This horn was completely dis-assembled, all defects corrected including some minor dent work and then silver plated including a GOLD outer band, as well as, a GOLD wash inner bell. But the prevailing rumor is that the actual brass that was used for these horns was from spent WWII artillery shell casings.This brass contained properties that are rarely found in traditional raw brass... However, the reality is that this is a Superior horn, regardless of its metal origins... Really remarkable for a 65+ year old item! This one has both, in spades! These unique and rare Trumpets don't surface very often for sale... Almost never in this condition. Grab one while you can!
