King Liberty Vintage ~   SOLD

A true player's horn from Kyle's personal collection. Both Jerome and Kyle exclusively played 1930's King Liberty trumpets until Jerome released his even more advanced horn in 2010, the Callet SIMA. Preferred trumpet of so many of the finest players of the 20th century including Ziggy Elman, Charlie Shavers, and Donald Byrd, the vintage King Liberty produced a richer, more powerful, more centered, and more in-tune sound than any trumpet before the SIMA. Handmade in Cleveland, USA with 4.5" bell and .448 bore. In original condition: no dents, no dings, no signs of any repairs. All 3 valves match original serial number, 1865xx. Compression is excellent, even the 2nd slide has excellent pop. Slides and valves are fast and smooth. No signs of red rot, this horn should provide decades of excellent pro performance as is - easily the superior of most trumpets at 3 or 4 times the price. No case or mouthpiece .... $600    Add to CART

* 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.
