This is a Gold Plated 1945 (S/N 151xxx) Martin Committee Bb Trumpet in great condition! This #2 bore is a first year production Committee model, after Martin stopped making the Handcraft Committee. This horn was restored and replated about 15 years ago by us and the restoration is holding up pretty nicely! There are a few spots that the gold plating is thinning and some scratches including one deeper nick on the valve casing, but it doesn't affect the valve in any way. The valves have very minimal plating wear, but they are still moving flawlessly and with great compression! The end of the leadpipe has some signs of red rot, but we stop the process with the chemical clean we put the horn through. The horn plays like new! This trumpet has the iconic Committee sound as well as idiosyncrasy, but with the gold plating it gives some extra shine on top of the sound! Comes with a Protec case.
