SOLD Reduced to $1,100 total which includes shipping (USA), insurance and PayPal fees. Will ship worldwide (shipping extra) but must pay with a verified PayPal account. Price Firm In my opinion, this is basically an extremely well built Bach Artisan C that has been optimized and plays extremely well, and this opinion is also shared by other professional trumpet players in the area that have test played it. I am selling because I ended up getting an optimized Yamaha Chicago C trumpet that fits me very well so I need to part with this custom C trumpet to help cover some of the cost since the Yamaha costs twice as much. Components: 1. Bach Artisan C Bell 2. Leadpipe: Najoom 524 Leadpipe (Similar to a Bach Leadpipe no 25H but much better) 3. Tuning Slide: M/K Drawing (Bronze Alloy, Rounded, Braced) 4. Valve Block: Carol Brass w/Standard Trim Kit and a Pickett Brass Heavy 3/4" Bottom Cap on the third piston (original cap included). 5. Uses Standard Bach Bracings. Raw Brass Finish No Case No Mouthpiece For the money, this custom c trumpet is stellar compared to anything around the same price range and more. Assembled by a highly skilled trumpet craftsmen. The braces have been tweaked for optimal resonance.
