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 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.

Callet Soloist Bb from apx 1985, completely handmade by Kanstul. Silver plate, .470 bore. Very good condition with no dents, not even any small dings. Very smooth valves with excellent compression - solid pop in all 3 valve slides. No sign of red rot. All slides are smooth and secure. Silver plate is 99.5% with only about 6 very minor surface chips like the one indicated with arrow in last pic on right.
"I've greatly enjoyed playing this excellent original Soloist head-to-head against my personal horn, a 2015 Callet NY Soloist. Though I owned the same model 'back-in-the-day', I now more fully appreciate why this horn's big, fat and powerful sound remained the trumpet of choice for so many hundreds of professionals around the world - Philadelphia Pops, Tito Puente band, etc. This horn's sound will easily knock over section mates, yet it won't overly spread like current .470 designs with bugle bells. This model, Jerry Callet's 1st from-scratch design completely handmade in USA by Zig Kanstul, will easily challenge the top models from every other builder, regardless of price. Its straight bore .470 design with 4 7/8" bell will take all the air you can deliver. And though it can't compete with the focus and projection of Mr. Callet's very latest version, it will easily smother the rest of the competition. I will hate to see this trumpet go because it truly is a powerhouse of modern design, several decades beyond most every other trumpet. At this price, it's a very special buy." - KES

*Trade-in dollars are non-transferable and non-returnable. They available exclusively as credit towards the purchase of a new Callet SIMA 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 with visible inspection of the outside surface of the horn or inside the leadpipe.
