Besson D Trumpet 1955 excellent condition Baroque piccolo brass vintage London
This is an amazing little trumpet in amazing condition. I wish I knew the history of this horn, but I can tell you that it hasn’t seen any abuse it its 60+ years since being built. I bought it to play piccolo trumpet literature and I’m not sure why more people don’t play D trumpet for piccolo literature. Most of the music is in the key of D which mean you get to play everything in C on this horn! It’s amazing how liberating it feels to play Purcell, Handel, Vivaldi and other Baroque pieces on this horn rather than on the Picc. I was actually looking for a good D trumpet for a long time before finding this horn. I was astonished to find a horn that played this well in such great condition. It really looks like it sat on a shelf or in a dry closet for most if not all of it’s life before I bought it. The case is also evidence to this. I would almost call it a time capsule from the 50’s. The case even has the original keys! All the slides and valves work flawlessly. The valves are yet another sign of the amazing original condition of this horn. My work has transitioned a bit over the past few years and I’m not gigging as much as I used to. I realized that I didn’t play a single wedding the past year and it no longer makes sense for me to hang on to this horn. If I were looking to get back into playing Baroque music for weddings etc, I would definitely seek out this horn rather than another piccolo. You would be hard pressed to find anther one is such great shape. I’ll try to upload a video of me playing the horn if I can figure out how to do that!
