King Bb/A Silvertone Trumpet / Cleveland, OH / #132833 / c.1931 / Sterling Bell / Artist Bore

I am amazingly the second owner of this horn, having purchased it from the estate of the original owner who died at over 100. Purchased new in Kansas for a young daughter who played it for a few years then decided to switch to piano. It sat in her closet for most of the rest of her life.

This is a time capsule horn purchased from the original owner who bought it in 1965 then used it until 1971 before putting it away for good. The dual bore horn is a fantastic player and the original case looks almost new. [19.25" long; 4.875" bell; 0.458" to 0.468" bore]
