Trumpet/Huttl trumpet line 800


Hi, I just got my kid a Huttl trumpet and I was wondering if this is a student model or a professional model. It has silver and gold
on the horn it is written Made by Huttl REGD western germany line 800. In the middle Valve it has a # 76984. I believe that's the seriel #. WHat can u tell me about this trumpet? year made??

Eny, The horn dates to the 1960's but they didn't publish their serial numbers so I can't give the exact year.The 800 line was considered an intermediate level horn and plays pretty well. The company moved to Canada in the 1960's and used the parts from Germany to build there.

I am familiar with most trumpets, cornets, and flugelhorns. I can answer most questions about playing and musicality. Best of all, if I can't answer it directly I play regularly in several bands and have many "old timers" that are familiar with most things that I am not. I collect, repair, and refinish old and new horns and have sold over 1700 with more than 900 on ebay


I have played since 1965 and studied with many directors and trumpeters. I have been collecting since 2002 and have over 150 horns in my personal collection. I have done repair and refinsh since 2003 and have done work on over 2500 horns.
