Features: Mt. Vernon model Bb Trumpet made by the Vincent Bach Corporation in ca. 1957 (just 2 years after the famous “Chicago” era instruments). This trumpet has the craftsmanship and classic sound you would come to expect from a professional Mt. Vernon trumpet. The horn has a large palate of colors, more brilliance, truer intonation, even sound in all registers, and clearer articulation than many modern Bach Bb instruments. Medium Large bore (0.459"). #37 Bell with French Bead. Standard 25 leadpipe. 2-piece valve casings. Matching serial numbers on each valve. Metal valve guides. 3rd slide ring. All slides and valves move smoothly and the trumpet has excellent compression, especially considering the age of the instrument. Silver Plating is near 100% and looks beautiful. There is slight evidence of use on this trumpet because of its 60+ year age, but nothing that effects the playability of the horn. The trumpet is in EXCELLENT CONDITION.
