I have the same rotary c trumpet. It was specially made to order and there are not many out there. I am trying to sell this if you are interested in. It's 5 years old and in a great condition.

I also just bought a Bach rotary in C...same specs as listed above, and in great shape (like brand new)but mine has a serial number of 3808 on the first valve casing facing the receiver but somewhat hidden behind the trigger for the third valve.  I'm very happy with it, (typical tuning problems on E and E-flat at the top of the staff) but i feel like I got it for a very good price.

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.

I played at Brunswick High School. I played through college and have a BS in Business Administration from Trinity College. Of course, I am still learning from all my friends that play and work on trumpets around the world.
