This pre-owned Hub Van Laar Oiram 2 trumpet is in wonderful shape. The valves are silky smooth and the plating is in great condition. No dents or dings. The horn is in raw finish with plenty of character.
The bell diameter is a bit over 5 inches but the throat is not too large. There's a nice diversity to the sound profile. This horn also responds very well to mouthpiece changes, so a deeper or more efficient mouthpiece will further expand your options.
Here's Kyle playing this amazing trumpet!

Van Laar says:
The OIRAM is our heaviest trumpet. Thanks to the finely balanced distribution of weight, this instrument is a delight to hold and can be played for a long time without discomfort. The OIRAM trumpet has excellent slotting, and the sound can be varied to range from dark and smoky to bright and clear. The OIRAM is a versatile trumpet perfect for combo playing, wind band, or as a lead trumpet. Like the OIRAM flugelhorn, the OIRAM trumpet was designed by the Belgian architect Mario Garzaniti.
Mario Garzaniti is an award-winning architect from Liège, Belgium, who not only designs buildings but also plays the flugelhorn in his spare time.
One day he came to the Van Laar workshop in Margraten in search of a new instrument. He loved the sound of the Van Laar flugelhorns, but being a creative person, he had of course a few ideas of his own about how his instrument should look.
Hub van Laar found Mario and his ideas fascinating and asked him to come up with a new design. Just three days later, Mario presented Hub with the first of many sketches – and not long after the OIRAM was born.
Incidentally, Mario also gave the instrument its name: oiraM | Mario.
Thanks to the finely balanced distribution of weight, this instrument is a delight to hold.
