Description: Trumpet - 1939 Blessing Artist Clifford Brown
1939 Blessing Artist...What a player! This horn has been to my repair technician (Pete Rodriguez in San Antonio) who in my opinion is the best in Texas! The horn has no valve leaks and has had the valves aligned due to worn felts...I bought this horn as "another back up" and have recently decided to go back to school... I can't afford to keep a bunch of horns around. This is a great trumpet that really projects with a great, balanced spectrum...highs, mids, and lows...it is a .466 bore but due to the tighter wrap plays more like a Medium large Bach...I did some small group jazz stuff with this horn last month and was very pleased it also plays quite effortlessly "for me" in the upper register... big G's/A's.
I was always intrigued by the super artists and artist models because of clifford brown...supposedly the artist and super artists had the same specs but were cosmetically different, engraving etc. here is a link to some pics
