This Selmer 23A balanced action trumpet is a must-have for your collection if you're a fan of mid-century American trumpet playing. Balanced action trumpets were the horn of choice for artists like Louis Armstrong and Harry James. This one has been beautifully restored by the great Mark Metzler, including a valve rebuild. Get an amazing vintage sound with the playability of a modern trumpet. The gold lacquer on this horn is an incredibly rich color!
Check out this live video that Trent did on this horn. It's a fairly lo-fi video but you can hear how beautiful this horn sounds!
There's some acid bleed on the bell, which is a purely cosmetic blemish resulting from the initial soldering of the bell bead. There are also a couple small spots of lacquer wear. You can see a couple small pings on the bell flare. Please give us a call if you have any questions about this trumpet: (816) 410-0826
