Trumpet/Three trumpets


I have three trumpets I wish to sell but have no idea of their value. 1. KING Liberty made by The H. N. White Company, Cleveland Ohio serial #320166 2B, looks like brass. 2. Conn serial #63294, has the word "Japan" embossed below the serial number, brass and ?chrome?. 3. Stradivarius model 37, _uceu Bach,
(couldn't make out the first word)Elkhart, Indiana, serial # 407008.The last was purchased in 1995 at Elkhart for $1,000.00.
The owner of these horns passed away.

These numbers are very approximate; a local technician can assist you and you can also check completed eBay sales.

King Liberty, probably a few hundred dollars. There were multiple models, some worth more than others.

The Conn, likely a Director, made by Yamaha in Japan. Not worth a whole lot, maybe a hundred dollars.

The VIncent Bach Model 37, depending on condition and the mouthpipe, is likely worth around $1000, give or take, today. Condition and playability will be very important.

Good luck with your sales.

I can answer your questions about Buescher trumpets and cornets. I have been playing Buescher for 35 years and collecting for 7.


I first started playing my grandfather's Buescher 400 trumpet in 1975. Since then I have done a lot of research, including original catalogs and advertisements that I own, correspondence with other Buescher owners, and obtaining my own Buescher collection, including six trumpets and three cornets.

I am a technical writer with 15 years experience. I have also been playing trumpet since 1975 and collecting Buescher for the past 7 years.
