    Hello, I'm currently looking for an older Blessing Super Artist Trumpet from the 30s to 50s.
    I highly prefer the versions with an underslung 3rd slide finger ring.

    Please send me a PM if you have one you are selling or trading for (I have trades avaliable as well) along with some pictures.
    We can also discuss matters through email, my email is
    [email protected]

    I can buy or trade.

    Hint.... The "Standard" vintage Blessing is large (.470) bore and IMHO plays as good as the SA and can be found for much less $$$ FYI

    Eww, I want awesome engravings the though, so I wouldn't mind paying an arm and a leg.:-P

    Besides, I love the micro tuner on the SA.
    I would prefer the nickel on the SA as well over full brass on the Artist.

    Yeah, I have.

    The "remake" probably will never sell at that price considering you can get an actual mint SA for less.

    I'm watching the auction one on eBay but it will probably get sniped in the end so I don't have high hopes of winning it or winning it at the price I want.

    Hey,
    I have a Super Artist from 1947 with the underslung slide ring. It is in great condition with a bit of lacquer wear at the contact points and a couple of other spots.
    It is a really great horn, I have had a few of these and this one has the best tone and intonation of the one's I've played. If you're still looking send me an email and I can send some photos and a video.

    Thanks
    Jake
