Description: Trumpet - Chicago Taylor Custom Trumpet
I have a beautiful Taylor Chicago Custom Trumpet in raw brass for sale. Other than a few dings in the horn from normal use it is in great condition. Comes with horn, two taylor mouthpieces (standard Taylor 3C and another similar to a 1C I think) , several mutes (including a copper Tom Crown straight and harmon) and a Bach double gig bag. This horn retails for $4175 and goes for about $3600 through online discounters.
From Taylor's Website:
This is the big boy of the Chicago range. Massive big, dark sound. Capable of tremendous volume and extreme subtlety as well. Blow it hard and the sound just gets bigger and bigger, never really introducing much cut. It just gets louder and louder. There is no shut off point either. It will just keep increasing in volume till you physically cant give it any more air.
But it also has a softer side. This is probably the main reason for the Chicago Customs popularity with Jazz soloists. A warmth of sound at lower volumes that other trumpets so rarely possess. The ability to taper off the volume to little more than a whisper without loosing control. The way you can change the tonal colours within the same musical phrase. This makes it one of the most expressive and lyrical trumpets you could ever play.
I am selling this horn because I do not have the time to play like I used to. So, this is your opportunity to own an amazing horn at a great price.

I am asking $2100 firm and will ship it anywhere in the US for this price.
