I was wondering if anybody had any info on a trumpet that I just picked up. It is a Boston Vega/Standard trumpet charles George model. It has a patent date of 1910 on it. the outside valve casing looks very similar to a 1926 Bach (apollo model) that I have and has some characteristics (braces and other fittings) that look identical to a Benge that I used to have. Did Vega try to duplicate the French Besson like Bach and Benge did? the engraving on it is very nice with the more elaborate push style engraving rather than the shallower scratch type. Over the serial number is stamped SB and the number 3. It plays very nicely (a lot like the Apollo). I was wondering if anyone else has any experience with these?
