    For sale a Taylor Custom Shop trummpet with "enneagonal" bell, 9 sides!
    It is 1 of 2 custom trumpets made by Taylor in UK to celebrate the old gramophones.
    You can see it also in his website:

    http://www.taylortrumpets.com/customshop1.html

    The trumpet has:
    - a great Bauerfeind L-bore valve block (no Carol Brass)
    - copper bell with the final yellow brass flare
    - gold lacquer in some details (top and bottom caps , slides)
    - blue Paua/Abalone stones top caps
    - a wonderful vintage "Art-Deco" engraving on the bell (like the olds Conn)
    - one piece octagonal leadpipe in yellow brass
    - 2 main tuning slide (1 standard, 1 longer to tune the horn in A)
    - a Taylor massive nickel-silver mouthpiece with octagonal flare like the leadpipe

    It comes without case.

    The horn is very freeblowing and has a big fat sound, typical of the Taylor Custom trumpet.
    It is also a big collectable trumpet.

    I can send more pics and videos.
    The horn is located in Italy (north-east, near Venice).

    I don't know what acoustic effects it might cause, but aesthetically, I love the bell. Very cool.

    Andy is a beast. How many trumpet makers would even attempt doing these things?

    Good luck with the sale...3400 is a great price for a custom shop horn, shouldn't be too hard to sell!

    Usually custom horn are custom from the aesthetically point of view, like in this case, this horn plays in the middle between a Taylor Standard and a Taylor Custom.


    Yeah, he is really great! A trumpet like this new goes for over $6k.

    That would be "nonagonal."

    Yep! Nonagonal and enneagonal are the same, correct?
