Martin Committee Deluxe Trumpet
The trumpet has been over-hauled and the lacquer stripped off, but it was decided not to plate it because of the 'unbelievable' tone. Condition is good, with just a couple of small patches (one on the lead-pipe, one on the bell bend) and a slight kink in one of the bell braces, but no dents. Valves and slides are all free and as they should be.
It's free blowing and accepts a lot of air. Tone is very warm and rich, almost cornet like at times, and is very versatile. I love the sound and I've been using it on a daily basis since I bought it for my teaching.
