This is a 1940s Besson Brevete relacquered Bb trumpet in great shape! We cannot really determine if it is a pre- or post-war Besson, but the serial number 94xxx definitely puts it in the 1940s. The trumpet has received a valve job and restoration a while back, most probably by Schilke. There are some signs of red rot on the leadpipe, but our chemical cleaning process stops them from getting worse. There is a sleeve close to the receiver on the leadpipe. The rest of the horn looks as good as it plays! This trumpet plays extremely well, thanks to the rebuilt valves! Even all across the range with a sweet sound, that you can light it up with just a thought! It is one of The Bessons out there that can put any other horn under!
This trumpet is part of the Jimmy Taylor Collection.
