This is serial No. 1408. It's a unique looking instrument based on the Benge, Claude Gordon model but put in a more compact configuration that possesses the tone and playability found only in the best of hand made brass instruments. This instrument was made specially for its original owner by Zig Kanstule and is a one off model with a .470" bore. Lacquered brass finish that has had some dents taken out, very well done and most noteably on the bell bend (I've included a picture, but its really hard to see).

The trumpet plays exceptionally well with good intonation.  It sound better than many full-sized trumpets and I've used it on a daily basis for much of by teaching.

It's said that the Benge pocket is the “gold standard” by which other professional pocket trumpets are measured.  This instrument might well be the reference instrument which other Benge pocket trumpets have to measure up to.

 

Price: SOLD.
