SKU: 335490 Category: Tags: , ,


This vintage King Liberty trumpet is in great shape. It has 80-85% of the re-lacquer with light player wear across the horn. It has just come back from the shop where a few small dings were taken out of the bow and everything was adjusted so it plays great. It has a serial number of 335490 making it a 1953-1954 vintage horn. The third valve tuning slide and the main tuning slide are both two-part tuning slides.  As it comes apart you will see the numbers 490 engraved indicating that this is original to this horn. The engraving on the bell is still nice and clear with leaves and flowers around the words ” King Liberty made by The H.N. White Co. Cleveland Ohio”. It comes in a replacement Bach case which is in very good condition. No mouthpiece is included. This trumpet has a bright, round sound with great intonation. It plays very easily up and down its registers.  It really can pack a punch if you want it to just like you would expect from a great King instrument.
