This is a vintage Paris-made F Besson Brevete trumpet in gold plate, serial number 101843. This is a beautiful instrument that has been lovingly well cared for over its life. The trumpet shows no signs of serious past damage or repair, and the valves and slides move effortlessly. The gold plating shows minor tarnish, and a couple spots of wear on the usual touch points, where you can see the silver plating underneath peaking through.


The Besson Brevete model was a very popular trumpet, especially for jazz, in the late 40's and 50's. This horn dates to that time period, and is still in outstanding shape. The leadpipe of this horn has been angled up, and done very well, which the previous owner found more comfortable for his style of playing. It ships in a vintage Besson case, quite possibly the original to this horn.
