Conn 2B “New World Symphony” - 278XXX (1929) - Bb trumpet, built in 1929. ML bore (# 1½ bore - 0458 ") with “top spring valves”. This model 2B New World Symphony” was produced only between 1926 and 1932. Engraving of the bell, done by legendary “fascinting Stenberg Brothers”, Charles and Julius (we can see them on this picture of Ray Jensen done in 1920, with the “engraving and burnishing department of C. G. Conn”…and in another picture of 1950). According to "Conn Loyalist", this model “…it was originally designed for members of the Philadelphia Orchestra as an 0.458" bore version of the 22B New York Symphony but with the difference that the radius of the tuning slide was wider. The effect of this design change gave the player a more open, round sound, and allowed for a more open feeling to the scale…”. It is in 100% original condition without any change. It shows some tiny signs of normal use of a instrument with 86 years. Good compression. VERY rare and in very good condition (the few copies of this existing model on the market, mostly are changed / modified, repaired or replated, etc, etc). The conn 2b is a pretty modern trumpet, as modern as a bach strad or similar horn. What Conn said about this pattern in 1927: “New World Symphony 2-B Trumpet Destined to Become Most Popular Trumpet in the World - Flexibility of scale never before attained in any other trumpet, a superb "trumpet tone" without one blatant crack or trace of "squeel" from low F to the top of the scale, rich and solid in fortissimo and zephyr-like in pianissimo, faultless intonation throughout the complete range! "Most perfect trumpet the world has ever seen" is the way some of the most celebrated symphony and concert artists have charaterized our new 2-B trumpet”…


Selmer Brevete 25 LB - 182XX - Bb trumpet, completly original and without any sign of repair work. Serial number shows that was made in 1956-57. Large bore 0,468 (25 bore). Good valve compression. According the “Selmer Loyalist” “…This is a pro model horn, used by many of the world top players of the 60's and 70's (maybe 80's?) as well as Maurice Andre and others on the classical side…”. Very gig sound with a lot of core.


Bach Stradivarius MT Vernon L 25 - 136XX (1956) - Bb trumpet. ORIGINAL "smoked" lacquer, by 40% compared to its condition when new (lacquer is still the original). 25 CORPORATION bell. With the number 136XX (1956) it is one of the first trumpets produced in the Bach factory in Mt. Vernon (trumpet Bach with the serial number 12615 is the Earliest known Mt. Vernon Serial # produced in the Bach factory in Mount Vernon) . "L" bore. It is in mechanical condition, as new. Fantastic compression on the valves and slides. There are six "patches" installed, as protection.


Emo World Louis Armstrong - 81X - This is the exact brand and model that Louis Armstrong used in his second Australian tour in early 1960. I put here a picture of a brochure that period, proof of that. The word "emo" comes from Ernst Modl, and the trumpets were manufactured in the "Musikwinkel". (Germany / Bohemia / Markneukirchen). After World War II, Ernst Modl reopened FX Huller (company) in Neustadt / Aisch and changed the name to EMO. This company closed after his death in 1972. The fact that Louis Armstrong have chosen this model is a proof of his opinion about the instrument. Beyond a continuous period playing "Chicago's", Louis Armstrong used other instruments such as Harry B. Jay, Martin and Buescher, however he seemed to widely promote European instruments: he learned to play a bugle musikwinkel "Champion Silver Piston" as well as spent many years playing the Selmer instruments. Building is more solid than any current popular model, Bach's, yamaha's, etc. Excellent valve compression.


Selmer C trumpet ERA II - 84XXX - C trumpet, top model (professional). Here are the specifications: Bore Diameter: 11.75mm, One piece, hand hammered bell, rounded at 125 mm, in brass (703) mouthpipe: "90" (standard), High precision Monel valves. This professional model is one of the last models produced in the Selmer France factory (the factory stopped producing Selmer trumpets in 2011). This one is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition (as can be seen in the photos). This trumpet has an optional leadpipe, made in the Selmer France factory, called "BE". Finishes without any wear.

Vincent Bach Mt. Vernon N.Y. Mercedes - 12 69X Just get this one recently. Contacted the Bach factory, trying to find exact information about this trumpet. Here the data given from the “Director of Bach Operations at Conn-Selmer”: “…it is a medium-bore (.453”) Bach Mercedes Bb trumpet. It has a #38 bell design and a #7 leadpipe. The #38 was Mr. Bach’s favorite bell for the Medium bore Bb instruments….and the #7 leadpipe was a popular leadpipe…”. Plus: Vincent Bach Mercedes trumpet with serial number 12576 and 38 bell was the "Latest NY known serial number"... and the serial number 12615 Strad, ML bore was the "Earliest known Mt Vernon Serial #", which makes this instrument a horn with some historical value, since it is one of the first out of Bach factory in Mount Vernon.  Here is the description of the model in the “Genuine Bach Mouthpieces” (1956): “In playing perfection these instruments meet the demands of the most discriminating artists, …They are made in the most popular bore, have sufficient volume of tone for a large symphony orchestra, yet they are so easy-blowing that dance, vaudeville and other musicians who work long hours find them an immeasurable aid to endurance”
Getzen Severinsen Bb trumpet, “Eterna” - Very good trumpet, Pro level, result of the contribution with Doc Severinsen,
( Serial 13XXX, I think it was built around 1973. Free blowing, balanced. Good condition. The famous getzen fast valves.



Toneking ninfator – My first trumpet. Few information’s about this model, important for me due to sentimental reasons. Serial 116XXX



Selmer 365 Ec (D/Es) - Model used and developed by Guy Touvron ( D/Es. Lacquer finish, 2 leadpipes (D/Es). Built around 1998, like new, without any sign o f use. Typical Baroque sound, ideal for that style.




Bach Mercedes Cornet - Manufactured at the factory in New York (closed in 1953), with bell "CORPORATION", serial number 11747, which means by the tables, was manufactured in 1951. This is a "Long Cornet", with the same "Bore" of a ML ML Stradivarius of that time but with 38 and bell "leadpipe" 7. Comparing with the finishes and materials of a Stradivarius "Vintage", there is virtually no difference in quality, since the same pieces were used for both models. The example, the pistons are manufactured exactly with the same materials professional level that characterized the "Strad's." As the serial number, is framed with the serial number of manufacture Bach Stradivarius.

COUESNON MONOPOLE Fliscorne-Flugelhorn VINTAGENot a lot of information about this one. Some visible repair work, nothing major e normal signs of use.  “Monopole” sound.
Pocket trumpet - Originally intended to be used as support professionals, to be used in private study in hotels and in travel, given their size, are having another type of use now, especially for very young students with limited physical abilities. In excellent condition, original state. Student quality sound, 100% functional. Very practical for the functionality that intended.
Scherzer piccolo
The Interchangeable Leadpipes
This rotary piccolo trumpet comes standard with four leadpipes, 1-A and 3-Bb. The A leadpipe is the standard which is used for converting the instrument to the key of A. The variations of the 3-Bb leadpipes deals with the resistance that each pipe can give a player. The decorative rings on the mouthpiece receiver specify the tapers of the leadpipes: I (M), II (ML), III (L). The I pipe has a tight taper which will give the most resistance. This will allow a player to create a very bright sound and also it will help the high register speak more clearly. The II pipe has a standard, more common taper which will help in all of the registers of the piccolo trumpet. The III pipe has a more open taper, which offers the least amount of resistance to a player. This pipe will create an open feel with a full rich sound.
Getzen Eterna Cornet serial B877 LB
This cornet presents original finishes and components. Mechanically in good condition, however they are visible signs of small old repairs on the upper arms. Bell, leadpipe (main pipe) as well as other parts of the instrument, never been altered or removed. That said, produces an impressive sound quality. Since it is a very rare model, I contacted the Getzen factory in order to know detail information about this cornet. The answer was: “…It appears to be the Eterna 800LB (LB on valve set means large bore)….  It is large bore, and in the early 60's that would have been .468". This still has the non-pearl finger buttons, no saddle and lever water keys. I would estimate this to be from around 1960-63. The Eterna is a professional line…”. Model Used by Philip Smith of the Orchestra of New York ... can verify are here:
