    Hello, today I'm selling my nice

    E.K. Blessing Super Artist Trumpet.

    PLEASE POST OFFERS HERE AND OR SEND ME A PRIVATE MESSAGE.

    Or you can contact me through my email.
    [email protected]

    Asking 500 with free shipping.



    Serial number is 150202
    circa. 1966

    POSITIVE AND EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO HEAR,


    -Compression is near perfect. Loud pop and hiss.

    -Valves have minimal wear and are very good.

    -Horn has had a chemical cleaning recently before I acquired it.

    -Horn is in excellent playing condition.

    -Horn probably has original lacquer and it is 97 percent with 3 percent I would say wear.

    -Dual Bore horn. Starts off as medium large (I believe) and ends in .468 large bore.

    -Comes with original lyre in great condition and a vintage Blessing 7c mouthpiece which originally came with the horn.

    -Also included is a zip lock bad containing original felts and corks.

    -Felts and corks replaced with newer modern pieces.

    -Has an uncommon micro tuner for the tuning slide. (I love it, it's like a unique locking mechanism and a more precise tuning device)

    -Plays pretty much like any Super Artist but looks different cosmetically. (Pretty much a Super Artist in better playable condition than an older one you would find)

    THINGS TO KEEP NOTE ON,


    -No case. (Will be bubble wrapped, A LOT)

    -Some wear spots on lacquer finish.

    -Some wear on nickel silver.

    -Previously owner had gold lacquer done on the nickel silver parts of the horn. (It is worn by now and is fading on the nickel silver, easy to strip)

    -What I would describe as micro dings (small bit sized nicks) on the middle part of the bell. Just very hard to notice.

    -Some scratches on finish, also not very noticeable.
