For your consideration is an unbranded rotary trumpet project that was created out of the remnants of 3 separate trumpets and housed within a used Gator brand hard shell case. This trumpet was crafted as a project build by a local college student enrolled in a band instrument repair program and was intended to help teach the intricacies of the instrument while crafting a unique instrument. The horn is currently playable, but would benefit from a regulation/adjustment at a local shop. During inspection, we noticed that the valve stems were not aligned level and would need reset. Along with this, we noticed plate wear and cosmetic wear throughout the brass and copper sections. This doesn’t inhibit play, but is visible. Lastly, we noticed the bell used in the project has a hole in the end of the rim. This will of course change the resonance and tone of the horn. The case has scratches and discoloration to the exterior section but is protective to the instrument and latches work as intended. Similarly, the mouthpiece included (Warburton 4M top w/ Warburton 5 backbore) is functional with minor cosmetic wear present. Top comes off easily and majority of wear is present in backbore. Listing would be best suited to a collector of unique instruments, a hobbyist wanting to continue the customization of the instrument, or a player wanting a unique instrument to play.
