Martin Committee trumpet medium bore serial # 15XXXX made about 1946. What a player this instrument is, I'm more of an Olds guy,not much experience with Martin, this thing really impressed me, the low end, the tone, broad berth within the notes, the ease of slipping up and down, bending and blending. What a blast to play, I can see why these are considered jazz 'go to'' trumpets. I got this out of a school system, it had some Micky Mouse repairs done on it in the past, I sent it to Charlie Melk, he put a new (he makes exact replicas) leadpipe and receiver on it, checked it out, adjusted the valves, straighted it out, removed a couple dings. I've been enjoying playing it ever since. Amazing instrument, I can't get over the feel of tone control while playing it, so much color and possibilities. As it turns out I cannot justify keeping this horn,I have too many great horns, I don't play in a group, it should be in the hands of someone who can use it, play it. The valves are great, good feel, FAST, all slides fit and move good, good compression, quite a player. I hand polished it as it had no lacquer left on it, the engraving on the bell has been buffed but not badly.I'd say it's 80%. This is one of the most striking playing trumpets I have ever played, the minute you put it to your lips you know it is a special instrument. Wow. My reserve is what I have in this one so here you go. Will ship outside USA for any extra needed shipping costs.
