As far as know Mr Ferguson was very involved with the Holton company and their trumpet designs. This trumpet is an awesome player / play tested / and blows very similar to a large bore vintage Committee but I believe it has a slightly more open feel than a Committee. These two horns share similar lineage.
This horn has nice and open / not stuffy feel over the range but still with something to blow against most likely due to a leadpipe design. There are just a couple of smaller dings on the bell pipe and small ding smaller dent on the bottom side of bell bow all shown on photos. Nothing drastic non affecting playability. No repairs , Bell flare never repaired and no edge dents. Silver is in great shape with very minor few dots shallow wear in contact points on 1st and 3rd casings silver shoes normal scratching from normal use was just slightly on polished.
All slides are free and valves are smooth and fast with great compression. It comes with original Holton case in great shape as well as Bach 3c silver mouthpiece in excellent shape as well. This horn can make an awesome gift for a serious advancing player or a pro!THIS IS LAST ONE IN STOCK! Get this one while you can!
