Here comes a rare and beautiful SELMER PARIS balanced model Bb trumpet. On the bell, it says: ''HENRI SELMER PARIS / DEPOSé / BREVETé FRANCE ET ETRANGER / FABBRIQUé enEN FRANCE / PLACE DABCOURT. PARIS''. Serial number 19050 is from 1957 - that was the time when Louis Armstrong played exactly this model: it's the 23A medium large model with a valve bore of .456. The ''equilibré'' model was probably Selmers most successful trumpet design, not too many of them were sold in the States though because they were considerably more expensive than regular trumpet models of the same brand. The bell has a french double rim for better projection and it has a quick throw on the tunig slide, all original. That was probably done for a quick key change to A. The horn is in raw brass without dents or corrosion, everything is clean and nice. The leadpipe is made of nickle silver, the rest is yellow brass. The valves are smooth and quick with good compression, they are numbered 34 - 35 - 36. All slides and caps are free. The french crocodile leather case is in somewhat rough condition, but will protect the instrument well. ...... This trumpet plays sweet and with a clear full sound and great focus - check out Satchmos beautiful recordings from that time. ......... please mind that I'm offering this beauty from Switzerland to worldwide, airmail shipping to the States is $59 by airmail priority, ask for other international destinations. Ther is no reserve and a low starting bid, so have fun bidding.
