But he realizes that this Martin is a once-in-a-lifetime find. Maybe you will make loss your gain! The Martin Committee Handcraft is highly sought after for its ability to "slide and slot" so easily and perfectly.More importantly, it's the horn or choice for jazz players who appreciate great vintage horns from this era. Most people view the Martin Committee alone as the "Holy Grail" of jazz trumpets, let alone a vintage handcraft #3 or #2 in mint condition like this one. Although the largest bore Martin Committee handcrafts are technically a little more rare and sought after, the medium bores that play exceptionally well are considered to be the Holy Grail, as well--and this horn is definitely one of them because it feels like a bigger bore Martin and sounds and plays like butter. You really know you're playing a special instrument when you blow air through this magical horn. The horn is incredibly light, yet produces such a warm and full tone. Players who know Martin understand how special it plays and how well suited it is for jazz music. This one especially is able to bend and manipulate notes and tones so easily. There really is nothing else like it.
The overtones are there in spades and the intonation in this horn is the best of any of the Committee Handcrafts we (or anyone else who's tested this horn) have played/heard, which is saying a lot! This particular horn feels like a bigger bore horn and it has excellent valve speed and compression. The 3rd valve finger ring adjustment moves freely without any drag. The instrument has also been chem and ultrasonically cleaned thoroughly. The valve stem corks, felts and waterkey corks were all replaced recently.And we're throwing in extra springs and corks for your next home maintenance session. We included a couple of pics with the third valve slide ring screwed in so you can see that it looks good and fits/works perfectly. A lot of players we know don't really use slide rings to tune notes, so we left it off for most of the photos to feature the more important parts of the horn. We also have some amazing new and true vintage mouthpieces that would KILL in this horn, from makers like Monette and the original Holton Heim, like the #1 and the #2 that Miles Davis used. This horn does not come with a mouthpiece, as mouthpieces are as personal as a player's shoes or watch, but we do have a bunch availablejust inquire or check our ads that we will be posting and updating. We're based in Los Angeles but have satellite reps around the world.
