There are no pictures available for this trumpet
This is a Scherzer picollo trumpet with a sterling silver bell and leadpipes, model 8111 ST. The instrument has 4 rotary valves, the 4th valve being operated by the right hand. The instrument comes with 3 Bb leadpipes with different levels of resistance and 1 A leadpipe. Each are made of sterling silver. The third valve slide has a trigger, operated by the left hand, which can be used for intonation purposes much like on a standard Bb trumpet.
The instrument is in mint condition and has been well cared for, serial number 372803. The valves operate extremely well and are tight. Silver plating is excellent and all slides work and move freely. The trumpet was bought new from the Woodwind and Brasswind last year, priced at over $3000.
This trumpet plays beautifully - to my ear it has a much more centered tone as well as pitch than the standard Scherzer without the heavier sterling. In addition, this instrument seems well-suited to solo/chamber as well as symphony work because of the extra weight from the sterling silver.
The instrument comes without a case. Buyer pays shipping, international shipping OK. I accept paypal as well as cashier's checks, money orders, and certified bank drafts in US funds. Please contact me with any questions, as well as for pictures. Thank you!
