Here is a rare Courtois "Grand Siecle" 216L C Trumpet. The 216L features a 0.464" L bore with a direct air column design through the valve block for increased response and less resistance. The Grand Siecle also features a 5-inch handmade BAJ bell with a traditional French rim for outstanding resonance and projection. This Courtois is made in 1980 (S/N 410xx) and the original design was created in collaboration with Roger Delmotte (Paris Opera Orchestra). The lacquer is in great shape (85%) with some loss. The monel valves are in excellent condition with a lot of compression left! The trumpet also has triggers instead of rings or saddles for first and third slides. The Grand Siecle has a very open blow and can easily fit into any situation you might need a C trumpet for! This trumpet will perform as well in an orchestral setting as a solo instrument.
