Well cared-for custom-level Shires C trumpet.  This instrument is in excellent condition.  It has had a valve alignment and been ultrasonically cleaned at NCW.

It shows minor signs of use as one would reasonably expect from use by a professional trumpet artist/educator, such as very minor scuffs and one small dent near the bell crook (see pictures).

Includes original Shires-branded ProTec case, also in excellent condition.

All pictures are of the actual instrument.  As always, if you don't love it, return it within two weeks for a full refund.

 

Versatile, easy to play, warm, and powerful, the Model 5S/W1R transitions seamlessly from solo recitals to large orchestral performances. It features a special "5" bell taper with a slightly squarer bell bend, side seam, and steel bead. These characteristics give its sound added complexity and a steely shimmer, cushion the blow slightly, and enhance its projection and power. The bell of the 5S/W1R is made with the traditional, longer bend to which many players are accustomed. For some players, this can open up the feel on top of the staff; for others, it improves the attack—while maintaining the centered sound of the "5" bell. Matched with a custom leadpipe and W tuning slide, it produces an ideal balance of stability, flexibility, response, and projection. Nickel-silver balusters and valve caps add brilliance and character, increase its core, and contribute to cleanness and immediacy of attack.
