Here is a Martin Imperial Lacquer Bb trumpet from Martin's golden years! This 1952 (S/N 179xxx) trumpet features most of its original lacquer, double reversed tuning slide and a measured .460 bore from 2nd slide. The valves are like new that we couldn't really tell if it has been redone, and the compression is great with loud pops! The Martin Imperial is often called the poor man's Committee and it sure plays like one! Dark and centered sound but with the fluidity of a Committee. Comes with original case, guarantee card and instrument care pamphlet! Take this piece of history home and keep the story going!
