1938 Selmer Paris 22 Trumpet Artist Quality MB LP Light Weight Bell Rare. Here is a nice old Selmer Paris trumpet marked on the mouthpiece receiver BB MB LP 22. Horn also has the hard to find Qualite Artistique stamp on the bell, which designates it as being made with a lighter weight bell and the larger sized medium bore which I read was. 458, I haven’t measured it. I got this horn from the descendants of the original owner, their daughter, who is now 50 years old played it in school, it was originally the lady’s father who owned it. Anyway the horn looks good for its age. It needs the bell to be straightened up a little, it is a lighter weight brass and has been flattened a little along edges, it also doesn’t have the heavy reinforcement around the bell edge you typically see on a Selmer. Horn plays really well, has good dark tone and a real jazzy intonation. Qualite Artistique stamped horns have a reputation for being committee like in their tone and intonation. Bell measures approx 4 5/8 across. Valves all have good compression and pop etc, I noticed they had some discoloration and wear but horn plays well. I would guess it could use a good cleaning etc, but overall it’s a very nice horn that plays very well. Also comes with original bill of sale from 1939 and Selmer lyre.
