    I am looking to purchase various examples of Martin trumpets, cornets, flugels etc.
    Will look at instruments from 1930's - 1960's.
    Condition - I don't mind the condition to be honest - I will even buy your beaten up horns if I feel they can be revived.

    Specific Models I am looking to find in any condition:
    - Martin Handcraft Imperial '38' - It will have 38 in the Bell
    - Martin Handcraft Imperial Large Bore (any bell)
    - Martin Deluxe Committee Flugel
    - Martin Imperial Flugel
    - Martin Bb Piccolo Trumpet (was made various years and might have custom on the receiver or not)
    - Martin F trumpet (apparently they made a trumpet in F? - never seen one, but it was on the list for many years)
    - Martin Custom Committee
    - Martin Magna Trumpet
    - Martin Handcraft Committee Trumpets/Cornets

    This is quite the list - and I am sure I won't find them all, or be able to purchase all of them, but I am resourceful and have tons of trades available.
    Please PM me with any potential horns you have for sale.
    Got some spare parts lying around? - I will be interested in those also.

    Also, I am looking for any old Martin Handcraft/Committee/Imperial marketing materials - specifically Brochures, prices lists or cleaning instructions, swing tags etc - I will also buy those.
    Occasionally I see old factory signs and items floating around also - I would be interested in those items also.

    Thanks for the link. I am pretty sure that has been re-lacquered. It has had all the small posts removed from the bottom of the tuning slide also. Case is original. Looks like it would make a great player. Too pretty for me.
