I taught band for a while, and have played and collected cornets and trumpets all these years. My little devil is not included! This trumpet was acquired from a local family whose children had quit band.
This instrument is in very fine condition, no dents or major scratching. I had my tech go through it and give it a precise alignment.
It plays very well in both Bb and C. I will say it is not as resonant as my Getzen Severinsen Eterna, but it plays quite well in both keys, and will slot to double C, if you got the chops. The case is an older Yamaha double case, and I have added an end handle to make it easier to get out of my closet. An older Bach 7C is included.
I have collected, repaired, and played trumpets for over 48 years. As a knowledgeable and experienced amateur, I have a lower cost of operation than a commercial enterprise, and can keep my costs low. I have thoroughly inspected this instrument, replaced the felts and corks and aligned the valves as needed, and made sure that it plays properly, and has proper tone for your beginner. I have cleaned the instrument thoroughly, polished all slides to prevent corrosion from locking the slides and valves, and properly lubricated the instrument with high quality lubricant. Many teachers do have preferences, and this can affect a student's progress.
I will, however, flatly state that many of the "bargain basement" new instruments from the unknown manufacturers (even when they are branded, you may not know who made them) are inferior. Parts for repair, or even the repairs themselves are not available, due to odd pieces, or inferior materials. Internal dimensions and correct alloys are critical on all musical instruments.
A shiny (or odd colored) instrument with inferior playing qualities will soon discourage even the most eager student. THIS DESCRIPTION IS AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE. THE INSTRUMENT WILL BE PROPERLY PACKED, AND INSURED FOR THE SALE PRICE. Other locations please contact me. I WILL NOT insure this instrument for less than the sale price.The item "GETZEN ETERNA C/Bb Trumpet Silverplated with mouthpiece and case" is in sale since Tuesday, February 2, 2021.
