VINTAGE MARTIN COMMITTEE TRUMPET


The Martin Committee, a trumpet with an unusual name, earned its name by being designed by a committee. It went on to dominate the jazz trumpet market from the late 1940s until the mid 1960s or so. Committees were played by Miles Davis throughout his career, as well as Chet Baker, Dizzy Gillespie, Maynard Ferguson, and even Al Hirt.


THE COMMITTEE WAS: Renold Schilke , Vincent Bach, Elden Benge (Schilke and Elden built the early Chicago Benge horns in Schilke's garage, they were neighbors and Schilke had the machine tool experience), Foster Reynolds (later he designed the Olds Mendez with Rafael) , AND A local player, presumably from the Chicago Symphony, since all these guys had strong ties to the symphony.

MY TRUMPET NEEDS JUST A LITTLE LOVE AND CARE. THE VALVES NEED A LITTLE OIL AND THE MIDDLE ONE NEEDS SOME ADJUSTMENT. I AM NOT A MUSICIAN AND DON'T CLAIM TO BE AN EXPERT. I HAVE TAKEN THE TRUMPET TO A LOCAL MUSIC STORE AND THE PROPRIETOR BELIEVES THE TRUMPET IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION CONSIDERING IT'S AGE. THERE IS 1 TINY DING DIRECTLY ABOVE THE MARTIN SIGNATURE. NO SCRATCHES. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS I WILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER.

NO RETURNS, BUYER WILL ASSUME SHIPPING VIA UPS GROUND PLUS INSURANCE. APPROXIMATE WEIGHT 12 POUNDS. I ACCEPT PAY PAL, MONEY ORDERS. CLEARED CHECKS BEFORE SHIPPING.
