    Miles Davis used to play a "red" colored trumpet. Anyone know the brand?

    Also, I couldn't find any pics of his red trumpet online but did stumble across a green trumpet that he supposedly played. Anyone know the brand?

    Thanks!

    You might think I'm kidding but I found only one pic of his green horn and the only pics of his red one came from an album cover of his.

    What are the chances his estate is keeping tabs on his images; even online?

    Red is when he played left handed and green when playing right handed.
