    I have found a Chas E Foote trumpet which has written on it Super Ref and the name F Markwick.Does anyone have any information on this instrument.It appears quite old
    The mouthpiece has the code SC16 and the name Lew Davis etched into the aide of the mouthpiece .Can anyone tell me anything about this name

    Chas E. Foote is a music instrument dealer in London: About Foote's Music shop in London
    They have been around since the 20's and I suspect never made any of the horns bearing their name. I don't know what your Foote trumpet looks like but here is one that recently sold on eBay that looks exactly like a Besson New Creation pictured here and here.
