Price : US $510.00
This is the original 1055T model Silver Flair from a generation ago, not the 2055T model of today which is not the top professional model the original 1005T was. It has a medium large plus bore of .462'' .The serial number is 487198 which dates it back to the early 1970's. The trigger has been removed and replaced with a thumb saddle. The silver plate is in very good shape, and the valves don't show wear. It plays with a big, bright powerful sound and makes a very good lead horn as well as one for jazz or latin solos.The slides all move and the valve action is very good. There is no rot, and there are no dents, although you can see where some have been removed from the side of the bell.The 3rd finger button and the 3rd bottom cap have scratches, and there are slight abrasion marks on the side of the leadpipe but overall it looks nice cosmetically and is ready to play as is.The case is an old King case, somewhat beat but still solid and useable. The mouthpiece is a modern King 7C in excellent condition.
Insured shipping is a flat $30.00 in the lower 48 states and $80.00 overseas. International bidders must use paypal.
