This is a rare Holton Model 608 Super Collegiate Bb Trumpet from 1955 (S/N 265xxx)! According to the Holton Loyalist, the T-608 was only made from 1955-7, so this trumpet was a first year production horn as the successor of the T-607 Super Collegiate. This is probably the one of the nicest Holton Super Collegiates out there, since we just have this trumpet fully restored! We stripped the old lacquer, sand and buff out worn spots and resprayed the trumpet with fresh coat of lacquer and this is ready to go! The Super Collegiate features a 2-piece bell (yellow brass stem with nickel flare, a nickel leadpipe, art deco slanted braces and a fixed 3rd ring instead of adjustable ring on a lot of student instruments. It has one non-original finger button. The original valves are in great shape with excellent compression! And do not be fooled by the label of a student instrument, this collegiate can definitely be utilized in any professional situation without lagging behind! Bring this beauty home before it's gone!
