MARTIN HANDCRAFT IMPERIAL
Pre-owned Vintage Bb Trumpet
Maker: Martin Band Instruments
A trumpet from another era. This was made in 1933 and is literally a transition instrument between the Martin Dansant model and the Martin Imperial. It has the Dansant name - but all the design elements are consistent with the Handcraft Imperial/Standard models - especially the reversed tuning slide configuration.
In essense it's a Martin Handcarft Imperial Bb Trumpet and plays fantastic.
Condition: The instrument is in great condition for it's age. It has been fully rebuilt by the master himself - Josh Landress in New York who is one of the best (if not the best) when it comes to Martin Handcraft instruments.
Valves are great, slides are all smooth and it's back from a full strip down.
I doubt you'll see one of thes again (I've seen just 3 like this horn in the last 10+ years - marked Dansant, yet the Imperial trumpet)
Accessories included: None
