    Does anyone know what brand of trumpet Val Kilmer was playing in the movie, "The Salton Sea"?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    It looked to me like a Martin Committee.

    Thanks Cbkkd but I can't claim credit for it. There was once a discussion here on C trumpets and someone mentioned that they sounded just as good as land ones...

    If it was a Martin Committee, wasn't Renold Schilke the biggest contributer to the design of that trumpet?

    Looks like a Martin Committee to me (based on the big receiver and side water key)
