    Thats awesome news Ray! I have not been able to find ANY info on my exquisit. I bought it in a pawn shop back in 95 for 25 bucks and just cleaned it up and enjoyed it. I finally tracked down B&S's email address and sent them pics and the serial number and they told me what it was. I am sending it out in a month or so for a full restoration.

    Warren, if you want B&S's email address, PM me and do the same thing I did and they can tell you what it is right down to the production month. Mine was manufactered in March of 1979. Your B&S resembles a Courtois Phantom but more Vintage looking.

    Here are a couple of my horns.

    This is my 1955 Mt. Vernon Bach.

    When I played in grade school, I had a really old beat up trumpet. I guess it wasn't that inspiring. When I bought my new one, seeing it all nice and new made me want to play again. Just my thought.

    Sorry, I misspelled. It was a Holten Collegate that I had.

    miles71, when did you get that horn? Is it really old or something or did it just wear down really fast?

    also, sorry for not posting. I have been busy. I really like the Cali Bb Light from NYTC. I REALLY like it. I hope some of you will put some more pictures of your own Cali trumpets. Thanks!
