Price : US $89.00
Here is a very nice, vintage Besson trumpet. It is a silver horn engraved: 50 MEDALS OF HONOUR, BESSON 2-20 LONDON PARIS NEW YORK, MADE IN ENGLAND.
The horn has a diameter of approx. 4 7/8''. It has the SERIAL NO. 446596, which would place it from 1968 (from October 1954, instruments stamped with the ''Besson'' name were given serial numbers from the Boosey & Hawkes sequence). The valves have the mother-of-pearl tops. All slides pull, spit valves operate normally. Valves appear in good shape see photo 2. Case as shown in background of photo 11. The components appear original. No solder joints show signs of repair.
Blemishes as detailed in photos : Photo 3 shows three blemishes along the bell pipe. Photo 4 shows a blemish along the lead pipe. Photo 5 shows blemishes on entry curve into #3 valve, and 2 blemishes on the #2 valve slide. Photo 7 is a recap of blemishes shown in photo 3. Photo 10 shows a blemish on the bell. Photo 11 shows some scratches at mouthpiece insertion opening. Photo 12 shows some blemishes between the bell and bell curve (closer to the bell curve).
This horn plays great and with a little investment at a brass shop could be a really nice horn.
