Recently traded trumpets available for purchase:
We do not sell horns with known problems unless the problems are announced upfront. All of our used horns are trade-ins on new Callet SIMA or NY Soloist trumpets. Most have been owned by professionals so they've been properly cared for. We don't service the horns, but we look them over and play them before moving them on at good prices "as is". Sorry, we do not take trades towards used trumpets.
Recently traded towards a Callet Sima. In very good condition.
An especially beautiful and superb playing Sima in rich gold lacquer that's difficult to distinguish from genuine gold plate. This is a special finish exclusive to Callet Trumpets that, unfortunately, is no longer available due to new environmental restrictions in California. All slides and valves are smooth, compression is excellent, no dents, pristine leadpipe. No repairs. Both spit valves were upgraded to Pollard keys so there is a small amount of slightly dimmer finish around that work. And there is slight dimming of the gold where left hand fingers touch the valve casings, plus a 3mm mark where a wedding ring grazed the finish on left ring finger before a clear protective vinyl strip was added, see pics. Apart from these minor imperfections this horn is like new and plays superbly .... $1949.99 Add to CART
Callet Sima Bb in silver, #46729 ~
Recently traded towards the larger bore Callet NY Soloist. Info and pics coming shortly.
One of the last horns from Jerome Callet's personal collection, Jerry
retained this Silver Flair due to its superior upper register.
Silver plate is 100%, no dents. There is one very small ding on bell crook (size
of pencil tip), and some corrosion on the valve stems (easily replaced). Rest of horn is excellent. Valves are especially smooth and
pristine, compression appears excellent with loud pop from each slide, no sign
or corrosion or red rot, leadpipe is pristine. No engraving on bell, 2nd valve
reads "King Musical Instruments, Eastlake, O, 509xxx". In September
1965, Edna King moved King production to a more modern factory in Eastlake and
started Silver Flair production in 1965. From the serial number, this horn is
from early 1970's. The single brace on the tuning slide plus the smooth,
unknurled top and bottom valve caps show that this is genuine H.W. White
production, not a later horn from UMI. As Silver Flairs from this era regularly
sell for apx $1400, this is an especially fine value for a top professional horn
in excellent condition. No case, no mouthpiece .... $
Callet Stratosphere Bb in silver ~
Pictures coming shortly
The Stratosphere is Jerome Callet's final update to the renowned Callet Jazz. The Stratosphere is essentially a refined Callet Jazz ending with a .460 bore at the tapered tuning crook rather than .470. As only 6 Stratospheres were produced before Jerome's initial retirement, they are rare and highly sought after. With a noticeably easier blow than the Jazz, the performance of the Stratosphere is surpassed only by the Callet SIMA and Callet NY Soloist. Used models have been selling in the $1600-2200 range, depending on condition. This Stratosphere is in excellent condition with no dents and no dings. On close inspection, there is a minor gray line on the bell showing sign that a small repair was done at some point. Silver plate is 100% and compression is like new. This is an excellent player with all the power of a Jazz and nearly the ease of play of a SIMA, an important prize for our many Callet horn collectors .... $2100 Add to CART
Our trade-in trumpets are sold as is. Sorry, no demo period for our trade-in horns.
*Trade-in dollars are non-transferable and non-returnable. They available exclusively as credit towards the purchase of a new Callet SIMA or NY Soloist trumpet.
* We visually inspect every leadpipe for red rot. If we see any clear signs of existing red rot then we'll note it in the horn's individual description. If red rot is not noted in the description that means we do not see any clear signs after visible inspection of the outside surface of the horn and inside the leadpipe.
