This is a Couesnon (Paris) Monopole Star long-bell piccolo trumpet with added fourth valve and two mouthpipe bits, one for Bb (with a cornet mouthpiece) and the other for A (with a trumpet mouthpiece). Couesnon never made a four-valve piccolo trumpet, as far as I know. The fourth valve, here, was expertly added, together with a new lead pipe, by a very skillful technician. The added parts were left as bare, unplated brass. The original silver plating is worn in typical places, showing that earlier owners used this instrument a lot. The valves and slides are in good shape: nothing is stuck, compression is good. There are no dents or dings. This is a loud, powerful piccolo, very well suited for big orchestral works. The intonation is good, with rather wide and flexible slots. Even after moving to the newer Schilke and Yamaha piccolos, Herseth continued to use this model for the D trumpet part in Ravels Bolero. Of course, it is fine for Baroque music, too. It comes with a worn, scuffed up cornet case but no mouthpiece. The item “Couesnon piccolo trumpet” is in sale since Saturday, February 18, 2017.

Serial number is 41369. This instrument has given me excellent service since I acquired it used thirty years ago. Before then it had been repaired where the lead pipe curves down toward the third valve. There is a small dent in the second valve tubing. Otherwise the instrument is in great condition; the compression is excellent, the valves work smoothly, and the trumpet plays wonderfully. For more information about this brand browse to Horn-U-Copia. And select Couesnon from the drop-down menu. The letter N on the second valve (below the dented tubing) evidently identifies the person responsible for assembling the valve block; see the explanation at The Trumpet Herald. This is the type of instrument that David Mason played for the piccolo trumpet solo on The Beatles’s Penny Lane. See the photographs included in this listing that show the Beatles rehearsing for the Our World live satellite television broadcast at Studio One, EMI Studios, London, June 25th, 1967 photographer unknown; see The Beatles through the looking glass onion. Mason participated in this session; you can see his instruments as well as George Harrison clowning around with Mason’s Couesnon piccolo trumpet. Evidently Mason’s model was the Monopole Conservatoire, not the Monopole Star, but because the Couesnon factory was destroyed in 1969 it is impossible to differentiate models and date instruments according to serial numbers.
