LARGE BORE COMMITTEE #3 as engraved above serial number. This trumpet is in like new condition and it plays very well. Miles Davis played Martin Committee #3 bore during his great career!
Condition : Condition of the instrument is like new. Horn is truly one of a kind!This trumpet has lots of beautiful engravings around just look on photos even on the bottom caps. Really words cannot describe how beautiful this trumpet is. All valves are smooth and fast with excellent compression and work like new, Springs in the valves are just right not too hard to light great for those fast jazzy passages just like Committee trumpet should have. Plating on valves is great as well. There are no dings or dents.
GOLD PLATED finish looks and is outstanding! So consider that you are getting like new Committee made almost 60 years ago. Valves move very smooth and fast with springs not too hard and not too light in the same time. Engraving on the bell crisp and fully readable same as serial and #3 on valves.Sound : This horn plays very well. It plays with beautiful rich and darker sound when you play with less power/mf and at that moments it just sings. Sound aura is very soulful. When you add some power and go higher depends on what mouthpiece you will be using with it it (Newer model Heim mpc same brand Miles Davis was using size 2 is included with original box) gets little brighter but if you keep a large sound up there it won`t get too bright. This is one of the vintage horns which has something special in the sound which the modern trumpets from the store just do not have.
Also included : Trumpet comes with a very secure HOLTON black case which has two handles. Also newer model Heim size 2 mouthpiece is included.
