Vintage Chicago Benge B flat trumpet, serial #754 - One Awesone Player Guarantee. Nothing is as awesome as a Chicago Benge hand built by Elden Benge & Schilke is the late 1930s.Serial numbers started at #500 and only 60 horns were built in his garage each year. This particlar horn is #754 which would have been built in 1939 or 1940. The horn has been refinished in silver with gold lacquer. The leadpipe is rot free and the valves are smooth.
This is an ML bore. 460 and the horn plays pretty open for an ML.The only issue I see is the serial # & benge stamps were overbuffed but this horn is one heck of a player. I have owned a few of these 3 digit Benges and they are very special. Includes the original case and a Parduba #5 mouthpiece that came with the horn. See my other auctions as I have a couple of beautiful Benge CGs.. LA 6X & Callet Jazz for sale.
