A beautiful, Josh Landress-restored 1898 Besson Brevete with a quick change rotor that adjusts the horn from Bb to A. This trumpet is in 100% original condition (original bright silver plate, original valves, stunning and clear engravings). Set up in the classic Besson "Rapuano" configuration, this is the 3rd oldest/earliest modern trumpet that we are aware of, the forefather of ALL modern trumpets!!! This horn has a lush and resonant sound that inspired both Vincent Bach and Elden Benge to make their own lines of trumpets. Truly a ground-breaking instrument. Used, no case.
