Roth Reynolds Contempora Trumpet 1956 Brass with Case
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-10)
Price : US $512.00
I am listing a Trumpet that we got at an estate sale. I will describe it the best I can but I do not know much about trumpets so please bear with me. See the pictures for details, if you know trumpets they should help you. What you see is what you get.
The daughter of the original owner said her father had bought this in the 1950s but was unsure when exactly, perhaps the serial number can answer that question (Did more research, see edit below). It appears to be brass. It has a silver colored ring around the end (where the noise comes out) that says Roth-Reynolds Intrument Co Cleveland Ohio. Etched into the side (see photo) it says Contempora in very pretty swirly script. The top of the buttons are mother of pearl. Every moving part moves smoothly, the buttons depress easily and the levers on the front and in the middle area lift smoothly. There is a number on the middle valve, forgive the poor picture but my camera did not want to focus on the shiny surface well, it says 42423 LB. From what research I did it appears that Roth Reynolds is a quality and well know instrument manufacturer. It will come in its case, which seems to be covered in imitation crocodile, has 2 working latches (I do not have the key to the lock) and has a molded inside that holds the trumpet snugly. From the images I have found, it looks like the original case they came in (I just found an imprint in the cover that says Roth Reynolds Instruments which reinforces my belief that this is the original case). Insurance will be included in the shipping price. I will try to answer any questions you may have, please don%2
