I've been lurking a long time, wow, this is my first post.
Anyway, last Christmas some of my students gave me a beat up trumpet as a gag gift. But now, I'm wondering if it might actually be a good instrument and worth fixing! It's stamped as "Arnold Voigt Markneukirchen." I know that Arnold Voigt specialized in violins/bows, specifically Stradivarius duplicates, but I can't find any information about Voigt trumpets.
My local music store tracked someone down in California that said there's no way to find anything out about it, so I'm reaching out to you guys. I also have a buddy in Munich that might be able to ask some of his trumpet friends there, I've already messaged him on FB and waiting for info.
Long awaited pics: it's in a really bad way, but I've seen worse.
