Etsy only allows us 10 photos per listing so we were limited in the photos we could post here. More photos, up close and inside the case, including the contents are available upon request. Please send us a message and we will get back to you ASAP.
DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ Case measures approximately 22" in length. Trumpet is approximately 18" length. More precise measurements are available upon request.
CONDITION ☞ Needs a good tune according to our professionally musically trained friend. He was even able to play it for us in the store to prove it works! Trumpet has patina and is stiff in some places, like the slides and water keys, so a good cleaning/oiling would be required to get it back to its original playable condition. Please see photos. Color may differ slightly in real life from how it appears on your screen due to varying monitor settings. Have a question about this item or want to see more photos? Send us a message & we’ll get back to you ASAP!
