PLEASE READ FIRST: I would like to explain why my response rating is currently
less than 100%. First of all, I would like to tell you that I have received only
two negative responses in the last 12 years and only ONE neg response in the
last year. And BOTH responses were given to me prematurely by impatient buyers
who had unreal expectations and didn't get their items fast enough....even
though I always try to get out my items as quickly and as safely possible.
Secondly, since all response ratings only go back for the last 12
months, this will have a greater effect on a member's response rating than if
the total responses counted were retroactive to the beginning of the
member's original activity. So, since there are way less feedacks in the last 12
months, this means that a single negative response is figured against ONLY a
years worth of buying and selling and therefore it will yield a larger
percentage drop than an overall rating percentage.
All that aside, I am a
very honest seller and I will be back to a 100% response rating again when that
negative response drops off in November of 2013. I have plenty of integrity and
I do not misrepresent my items.
So in essence for the past 12 years I have an
excellent response rating. You just have to know how 's response math
works.Please offer with AND THANKS FOR CHECKING

lacquer finish over brass and nickel
Serial number A4294
Date of Manufacture Approx 1969
Manufactured in Elkhorn , WI
First valve slide Trigger
Adjustable 3rd valve slide ring
Comes with the original Getzen hard case.This is one AWESOME playing trumpet !!! Cosmetically, It's not the prettiest girl on the block...BUT it's a solid horn and has been de-dented. You may look at the photos and decide for yourself. I SHOULD MENTION that the rusty looking areas can be polished to a nice brass luster as they are just areas where the lacquer had worn off from hand contact over the years. There is NO red rot. .This is a PLAYER'S hornl. This horn has been recently serviced and also has had some dents removed.
This trumpet has a nice round tone, great slotting, intonation, articulation, and range. It is one of the "BETTER" playing Getzen Capri trumpets.
The valves are in great shape too and the compression has...lots of POP !!! NO LEAKS.
All slides work great too.
It has great flexibility and you will LOVE the FAT tones low, round tones mid range and the sizzling high tones. Grrrrrreat slotting...articulates easily and offers a nice "bite". Has an incredible high register range...and does not lose intonation. This trumpet can scream. A great all around player for ALL STYLES. You'll love to play it as it can adapt to any venue and has a wonderful tone. All moving parts work great !!!
I always try to take as many photos in decent lighting for accuracy so Please examine the photos and decide for yourself.
A REALLY fun and easy blowing horn to play in ALL venues. I deal with many great horns... such as Bach , Olds , Holton , Reynolds ,Getzen, Schilke, King , Yamaha, Conn, Martin, Benge, Besson, Kanstul, Selmer, etc. and this one is on par with any of them. THIS HORN WAS THOROUGHLY CHECKED OUT BY MYSELF AND MY PROFESSIONAL BRASS REPAIR TECHNICIAN AND IS ALL READY TO PLAY !!!All of my horns are inspected, repaired,
and play tested by Kenny Robinson. FYI, Kenny toured with Maynard Ferguson's
band playing trumpet and he was Maynard's repairman as well. If you have any
brasswind or woodwind repair needs visit Kenny at his kgrmusic website.Occasionally, before I ship a horn I may have it re-checked which could
possibly result in a few extra days to ship out.
You will LOVE
owning and playing this horn for many years. Check out my response and please
offer with confidence.
