Here's a custom finished example of an early issue, silver plated Getzen 590S Capri...straight with no dents, dings nor repairs of any nature.

The trumpet is capable of handling any music style or acoustic venue with superb results. Capri's make wonderful lead/solo horns, but really shine when playing jazz...easy blowing, incredible projection, tonal color, response, slotting, intonation and attack.
