I was quite fortunate to learn of the availability of this great horn via an interesting sequence of coincidences. The trumpet was among the effects left by the mother of an LA studio percussionist, who himself has now passed away. I purchased the trumpet from his widow, a wonderful woman (a pianist and composer) still living in LA. It's current home is here on the prairie. What a magnificent warm, open tone!
